Howdy? It’s Mr. Wada back on duty. Graduation ceremonies are held in March in Japan. They would give speeches, and sing songs. Japanese students practice for months especially for singing. Practice over and over. So did I. Kinda painful but it shows how important this day is. This time, I am sharing classic Japanese graduation songs.
