The children we met were called Kaito, Ai, Keishi and Misaki. Kaito likes to be a Sumo Wrestler. Sumo Wrestling is a sport in Japan and Kaito is officially the second Junior champion Sumo Wrestler of Japan!

Japanese people speak.......Japanese! This is the main language in Japan.

In big cities like Tokyo there are people who can also speak and understand our language - English. We are far away from Tokyo and English is not spoken very much here. The Children went to Marks lesson so that they could all learn English.

Japenese is very different to English. We might find some words hard to speak or understand.

Reading Japanese can sometimes be difficult too! "Konichwa" is written "こんにちは".

Some words are easy to speak and understand. Here are a few that Anna has learned:

"Konichiwa" means "Hello". Try saying it: "Kon ni chi wa"!

"Arigatou" means "Thank you". Try saying it: "Ari ga tow"!

"Ichi" means "One"

"Ni" means "Two"

"San" means "Three"
