Japanese graduation ceremonies are a little different than the ones back home. They’re a bit more solemn, a lot of instrumental music box-y versions of pop songs are played as background music, and there’s more bowing involved than there is all year.

Sotsugyou omedetou to the all the graduates this year! I hope they all made it home safely <3
