day 262 - Shiroyama Sports!

My (Rob's) new school is Shiroyama Junior High. It sits at the base of the wonderfully granite-volcanic-looking Shiro-Yama. The past two weeks have seen intensive practice for the annual Sports Day (which is held on Sunday, typhoons permitting, so that all the parents can watch and cheer.) You can see it's a beautiful setting for a school...

Nothing is left to chance. Even the warm-ups are practised to the nth degree! 
Notice the playing-fields are graded sand. They drain fast in the wet season and don't waste water in the dry.
