In Japan April 15th Begins the School Lunch Year

Unlike many countries which begin their school year in the autumn, Japan begins the school year in April. Spring is the time for new beginnings after al!. For students it is not just new books and getting used to, for first graders who may not have experienced “kyushoku” (school lunch) before, today is a momentous day - their first official day experiencing school lunch in school.
