Question about Japanese school of Singapore and its relationship to Asia[edit]

Here is an article about the Waseda Shibuya Senior High School in Singapore from the The Daily Jakarta Shimbun, a Japanese newspaper in Indonesia

"同校は1991年、渋谷幕張シンガポール校として開校し、2002年に早稲田大学系属校になった。319人(10月現在)の生徒が在籍し、うち半数が寮生だ。寮生はタイ、マレーシア、インドネシア、ドバイなど各地から集まっている。" - From Google translate it states about 1/2 of the students live in Singapore and the other half live elsewhere in Asia, such as Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and Dubai. Is this correct?

About 1/2 of the students are dormitory students and they come from elsewhere in Asia, such as Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and Dubai. In other words, their Japanese parents live in other countries. The word 寮生 means a dormitory student. [1]

"早稲田大学の系属校としてはアジアでただ一つ。生徒の約6割は同大へ進学し、指定校推薦では明治、中央、立教、法政、関西学院、同志社、立命館などへ進学する。東京大学や一橋、防衛医大などの合格実績も誇っている。" - This one talks about what universities they go to, right? Does it say about 60% go to Waseda U with the rest going to other universities? (Rikkyo, Hosei, Kwansei, Doshisha, Ritsumeikan).

Question about students of Houston's Japanese school[edit]

Hi, Mari!

In isn't the JEI saying that these schools have relatively large numbers of students who attend the Japanese school on Saturdays?

Question about more Japanese[edit]


I know it has something to do with the Lotus Sutra (妙法蓮華経), and something to do with the Katsuragi 28 Stations, a Katsuragi Shugendō (葛城修験道) way station (行場), and a small shrine named "Kagami no Shuku" (鏡の宿」という祠) which is located near the summit of the mountain. Do you understand the "安楽行品第十四番経塚" part, and can you translate it? I'm just not that familiar with the Buddhist terminology. I appreciate your help.

WikiProject Intertranswiki[edit]

Hi. In 2009 you joined up for the wikiproject Wikipedia:WikiProject Intertranswiki. The project has since ceased activity but is currently being given a kick start due to its importance and the coordination needed to translate content from other wikipedias. If you're still active and are still interested please visit the bottom of Wikipedia talk:WikiProject Intertranswiki and add a {{tick}} by your name within the next week so the project can do a recount and update. Thank you. --Ser Amantio di NicolaoChe dicono a Signa?Lo dicono a Signa. 05:21, 29 April 2015 (UTC)

Mysterious Edits at my IP[edit]


I was recently messaged about a non-constructive edit I allegedly made on the Hirohito article that had been reverted. This edit was made 4 years ago, and I have no recollection of doing so. Is their any chance that edit coming from a different user, or some sort of bug? (talk) 03:16, 27 May 2015 (UTC)
