I wish for eternal peace...

Hello, everyone. I'm YU-KI, the chairman of the school festival executive committee (56th term). The article on this blog is a little bit deep. Please enjoy it.

I visited Yasukuni shrine on Saturday, April 20th, and I don't know why, but in the morning I suddenly said "Let's go!" as if I were being guided, Yasukuni shrine has the position of being one of the shrines in the national Shinto. This shrine has a special character that is different from other shrines, and not only the gods of the past, but also the gods of the future, that is, the new gods, continue to be enshrined one after another.

This shrine has a very deep relationship with World War II, but I felt very sad to realize that there were many people who died in the war. I think it's a bad thing to start a war, but considering the feelings of the soldiers who fought for the sake of their country and for Japan, I can't help but visit the shrine. Of course, I prayed for the success of the school festival executive committee (lol)

I felt strange when I saw the statue of my family who was going to see me off the field. It's a very painful scene to feel that you may not be able to come back alive and that you have a lot of determination.

And I really felt sick at Higashi-Ikebukuro Central Park, just below the execution of Hideki Tojo, a Class A war criminal. Even though it was a very sunny day, there must be a lot of people in the park, but somehow everyone kept looking at their smartphones and I remember the dark, stagnant air. It's a few minutes' walk from Ikebukuro campus. I still can't forget the scene where Hideki Tojo, who was sentenced to death by hanging in the past.

Since I am from Hokkaido, I feel very happy to be able to learn in Ikebukuro, Tokyo, which has such a history.

Inhuman acts such as war are absolutely unacceptable. It was an opportunity to think about the world again.

I wish for eternal peace,,
