Essay (The Life of Soji Okita)

2009 年 1 月 7 日

      On 1842, Soji Okita was born in Tokyo.  His face was cute as if he were a girl. When he was young, he lost his mother and father.  So He was young boy but had nothing to lose.  When he was 9, he started  at the Kendo.  He was a genius of the Kendo.  So soon He became the strongest swordsman in his Dojo.

      When he was 21 years old, he decided to join the Shinsengumi, as he respected the emperor of Japan and wanted to work for the emperor.  He and his friends went to Kyoto and worked for the Tokugawa shogunate.  Their main job was to kill the people who oppose the Tokugawa shogunate.  Because Okita and the Shinsengumi members were very strong as a swordsman, they soon became famous in Kyoto.

     In 1864, he worked hard at the Ikeda incident.  The Shinsengumi and Okita attacked the Ikeda ryokan to kill the enemy of the Tokugawa bakuhu.  He killed lots of enemy and many of his colleagues praised him for doing a good work. 

      However the Shinsengumi lost their power to control the Kyoto day by day.  They lost the battle and scattered around the Japan, and so did Okita.

     Although he was a genius of the Kendo, he could not win the disease.  After few years later of the Ikeda incident, Okita died from tuberculosis.  He cried again and again, when he knew that he couldn’t join the Shinsengumi forever.  Okita died 1868.  Only 25 years old.  Because of his kind personality, many friends of him grieved for his death.

Let me compared [compare] Obama and Aso.  I have discovered some similarity between them. Both are new leaders of big economic countries.  Generally, the leader of the country has lots of power to govern the country.  Therefore, it is worth knowing about these leaders’ personality and their political capability.  

 

Both leaders are known to be a good public speaker.  When Aso has delivered his public speech at Akihabara in Tokyo, hundreds of people gathered there and listened to his speech.  Although he has an evil tongue, a lot of people think his speeches are interesting.  On the other hand, Obama is also known to be a good public speaker.  Recently, he fascinated many voters and has become the President of USA.

In regards to economic ability, we can find their similarity.  Aso is called business Aso’ and many people hope that he will do a good job in economy.  Similarly, Obama is also known to be a good economist in the Democratic Party.

 

As mentioned here, both Aso and Obama have some similarities.  Generally, we the people tend to get along nicely with the leaders of [the?] same characteristics.  But do these similarities work well for their close partnership and strong cooperation?  That is yet unknown.  But the world economy is currently in great troubles.  Therefore, keeping good relationship and close partnership between Japanese and American leaders and hence between two world leader countries is more important than ever to solve such grave current problems.

       Tonkatsu is a Japanese dish with a fried pork on the top of rice.  At first, I was amazed by the savory smell like [a] grilled chicken.  Because of the tasty smell, no one will waste time to start eating!  Not only was the smell appetizing but also the taste was excellent!  The pork was so soft that I felt the juicy, juicy meat melted [melting] in my mouth. Too much of the delicious taste, I was in a trance.   I fall [fell] in love with that dish!

[Indent a paragraph with 5 spaces]   I want to be an English teacher.  The reason is that I believe an English teacher can enrich the future of Japan.  There are two ways of enriching the future of Japan.  First of all, teachers can help students grow.  A teacher can help students to be good and competent citizens.  And perhaps, w[W]hen student become adults in the future, [furthermore,] I believe they can in turn enrich Japan.

The rate of globalization is so fast that we Japanese must use English even if we never work or visit abroad.  Thus, I would like to seek a teaching license to be a teacher of English to help my future student learn and enjoy learning English.  Unfortunately, students often do not find it interesting to learn English. I hope I can motive them to learn and enjoy English.
