In my previous post on the Japan University Entrance Exams, I mentioned that we would be seeing some feel-good news about people making efforts to make sure the high school seniors can make it to their tests on time.
Here’s the first one I spotted… probably more to come.
Akita JR workers spent hours shoveling snow off the tracks to be sure that future college students would be able to make it to their exams on time. The workers were clearing the area around Yokote Station near Akita Prefectural Yokote High School where about 800 students were expected to take the exam.
They were digging out after the area saw over 100cm of snowfall stopping trains.
