[YRP Students' Essays] Dear Best House that I Loved

I loved your big blue roof made out of wood. I loved your huge garden with many kinds of trees and flowers. I loved how you taught me that living abroad is so nice.

When I was six years old, I moved to Denmark and met you. A house made out of wood and bricks. The roof was painted blue and it was flat. There was no second floor, everything was on the same floor. That's what I loved about you the most. Some kind of magic happened that made members of my family closer to each other. I loved your fireplace, too. The fireplace ate a lot of woods in winter.

The garden, filled with different varieties of flowers, trees and grasses. In spring, cherry blossoms in front of your entrance would bloom beautifully. In summer the shade the trees made was cool and comfortable. In autumn, foxes appeared from pine trees to seek food. In winter, we go out into the forest and cut some Christmas trees to take home. Of course we didn't cut the trees in your garden. My family loved you and your garden. I wish we could live in you again.

My house in Denmark

You told me that the world has many different places to live, and each country has their own good points. You told me that in Europe, nature is wide and the sky is blue and as clear as the sea. I can never forget about having a picnic in your garden filled with cherry blossoms. I really loved it. You gave me this wonderful experience that I could not have experienced if I was living my whole life in Japan. Living abroad is the most amazing and important experience that I will have in my whole life. You taught me.

From now on I would be living in many other places. Maybe outside of Japan. Time goes by really quickly, but I will never ever forget about you. So don't forget me either. I wish I could tell everybody in the world about you, so you won't be left alone in the wide, natural world.

Sincerely yours,

N. S.
