- “Nameless paints” includes ten tubes that don’t have color names such as “yellow,” “blue,” or “green.” Instead, there are only spots of a particular color or colors on each tube. As you can see, the spots are also different sizes.
- In Japanese schools, students don’t take any exams until they reach grade four (the age of 10). The goal for the first three years of school is not to judge the child’s knowledge, but to establish good manners and to develop their character.
- While most schools in the world begin their academic year in September or October, in Japan, it is April that marks the start of the academic and business calendar. The first day of school often coincides with one of the most beautiful natural phenomena — the time of cherry blossom.
- In Japanese schools, students have to clean the classrooms, cafeterias, and even toilets all by themselves. Most Japanese schools do not employ janitors or custodians.
- All classmates eat in their classroom together with the teacher. This helps build positive teacher-student relationships.
- To get into a good junior high school, most Japanese students enter a preparatory school or attend private after-school workshops.
- Japanese calligraphy, or Shodo, involves dipping a bamboo brush in ink and using it to write hieroglyphs on rice paper.
- While some schools have their attire, traditional Japanese school uniform consists of a military style for boys and a sailor outfit for girls.
- At the end of high school, Japanese students have to take an exam that determines their future. A student can choose one college they would like to go to, and that college has a particular score requirement.
- Having gone through ‘examination hell,’ Japanese students usually take a little break. In this country, college is often considered the best years of a person’s life. Sometimes, Japanese people call this period a ‘vacation’ before work.

I really hated school all my childhood, I felt discriminated since I didn’t adapt to the norms of the time, I didn’t talk to any adult thus any teacher just my school mates, and today reading my reports all was negative all the indicator were the last tick, the worse. Apparently I wasn’t following the “normal” path. I had to do 1st year twice. Left my new friends. And that was a load all the way till I finished school since I was the older. And today I feel that school was a really agresive place a place where the only thing I wanted was to finish the day and go home. It wasn’t a fun place, was boring, and without contention. Today I am proud of my self my carpentry career, I am good with my hands and i have plenty of fun. But I don’t want to recall those time of torture and I wish my kids have and open minded place to study where they can have fun.

As someone who has been going to Japan for 25+ years, I would say not creativity so much, but more like impeccable social manners. The creativity part comes from the idea as long as they do what they are "supposed to do" socially, they can be personally expressive in clothes and what have you. That may be the benefactor to this creativity.
Seems Japanese education system had a radical change in comparison to my school days. No critical thinking class, tons of memorizing, many tests from first grade, unreasonable grading system...etc back then. I appreciate manner education, cultural education, cleaning, and school lunch though.
i've never been in Japan, but i curious with the education system. Maybe just maybe they have an ideal idea system but some facts show that students are stress about the system.
but i do agree with the character building for child, it's really important :)
di Indonesia TK aja sekarang udah ditekan ama tugas menghitung,, edukasinya sebatas itu2 aja.. belum meluas mengenai pengenalan lingkungan dll.
tp dasarnya Indonesia orangnya calon barbar sih.. susah diajarkan kebersihan
Yeah.. I noticed it was Chinese music as well... so it makes me wonder about fact checking... but honestly I was looking for info on teaching intelligence... looks like all there is is stuff on emo intelligence... I think that should come later.
I don't think the fifth one is a good idea. That just produces way too much stress, trust me on this. My country is dealing with this too, and it's not even as bad as Japan yet.
The ninth one is even worse. Only ONE test to decide their ENTIRE future? Are you seriously telling me this is a good idea? You're got to be freakin kidding me.
Japan was able to accept the industrial revolution earliest in Asia. Because Japan boasted a high literacy rate for several hundred years. It was ahead of the European countries. Children were taught to read, write, and calculate in Japan. 150 years ago, Japanese were able to translate, publish and read Western civilization. Another tradition in Japan is "cleanliness". Cleaning up in front of the house every morning was to not cause discomfort to others. Japanese education has a tradition of "We beautifully cleanse our classroom to make our hearts beautiful".
I want to attend a girls high school in Japan.
The nameless paint idea is sheer genius and because I have a girlfriend and a son in The Philippines; I wish somehow that country could adopt an education culture like this. But that would require discipline, something in VERY short supply there.
It's shameful to see the US not being at the top of the PISA tests. The US is the biggest country in the World in terms of economy and technology, yet we don't spend a lot in Education. Japan, S. Korea and Finland are laughing at us.
I don't know where this info comes from. Japan has been headlined for a high suicide rate, second only to Sweden for a number of years; not it's wellness Whilst I love the creativity of both cultures, though very different, neither education system seems to be a predictor for future wellness. Interesting video nonetheless. Thanks.
Indian education system is far worse. All we have to do is to remember the stuff in study materials. Because of this, I left college and learning programming on my own.
Japanese education system is very good.
Please watch Yokomine preschool: age 3-5 years old. It’s real Japanese education today. My daughter is 46, American born & education. When she was little girl I raised her Suzuki-methods education. I wish I can import Yokomine-preschool.
Meu Deus, o Brasil tá TODO errado... Aqui a gente começa e termina a vida escolar fazendo provas, não há nenhum ensino sobre ética, só uma ou outra aula especial durante o ano (e ainda falam que nossas escolas doutrinam por causa disso!), e o pior de tudo: não há nada sobre criatividade. Nas caixas de tintas tem as combinações de cores, ninguém precisa pensar. Na minha escola teve um "projeto de arte" em que as crianças só COPIAVAM outros quadros. Ridículo.
Genuine compassion to all living beings is real education, not just being intelligent, successful and technologically advanced. They learn compassion and kindness towards animals, how to be gentle with animals, but still end up eating fish and meat. Is it only gentleness with pets? Why not cows and chicken, why not pigs and fish? Why not respect all other animals? That's hypocritical. The compassion is superficial.
Children Learning Reading is one of the best programs in market right now. There's absolutely NO other program like it. It's an amazing program that will help parents teach their children to read in just 12 weeks.

This is a unique real vampire website for vampires as well as the curious. It has valuable information for any real vampire and is based on scientific evidence. It also leads to other good websites for real vampires.
This is why I "think" Im a real vampire They have no desire to use us as lab rats or slaves. Before reading any farther on this site, This website is not made for poser vamps, close-minded people, or those who think that they are, or claim to be a vampire because they think the spirit of a vampire entered them at some time making them a vampire. We call these people posers, which they are; they are confused lost children. This site is not here for them in any way! It is for real vampires, curious people, and open-minded skeptics. The best compliment that you can give to this site, is telling all of your friends about it.
Real vampires are not pure fiction.
The Headache Paradox: It is scientifically impossible to have a headache, seeing that there are no pain receptors in the brain. Yet we continue to search for answers to what causes a headache, because we all know that headaches do exist.
Between a combination of the fact that our brains are roughly nothing more than a highly advanced mass of nerves, and that every function is controlled by signals that our brain sends through our nerves to the rest of our bodies, I think that if we could somehow make our nerves send stronger, more efficient signals at a quicker speed it would have a lot of different results. Including heightened sense (both physical and psychic) moving quicker both running and walking along with arm movement etc. The brain being just nerves would obviously also be effected, resulting in quicker more efficient thinking, which naturally would make us smarter, more observant, and have much sharper reflexes.
Some say that is an overly simplified form of how the brain functions, which it is. To them I say make the axons 12-15% wider, resulting in signals being sent much more quickly through the brain. Allowing neurons to create more connections without loss of speed, and the 10,000+ miles of blood vessels in the brain doubling as an additional cooling system for the brain. I could write a book on the cascade of effects that alone causes for people when they are changed in to a real vampire, however for now I will leave it in this simplified form.
