My Hometown

What’s a favorite place in your hometown? Some of our boarding students shared their thoughts…


My favorite place in my hometown (Japan) is a park that is ten minutes away from my house. It is my favorite place because it is a great place to relax and play with friends. The color of the leaves of trees changes as the seasons change. In the spring, very pretty cherry blossoms bloom on the trees and I have a picnic with my family and friends. But in the summer, when the leaves are bright green, I would buy ice cream at the ice cream truck that always stops by and hang out with my friends. In the fall, when it gets chilly and the leaves start to turn orange and yellow, I just sit on the swing alone and just relax. And even in the winter time, my friends and I still play at the park, all wrapped up in warm clothes. - Sara Hasegawa ’19

My favorite place in my hometown is the park by my house. My friends and I would spend almost every day of the summer there. We would play games that we made up and just have fun. We would stay there all day and never want to leave the park. We would always be doing something and having fun, we were never bored. I had a lot of fun as a kid in the park by my house. I always go to the park and it gives me so many memories and makes me happy. - Nik Norman ’19
