#065 Musashi school memory room honor advisor
Taiji Fukuda

It is got close to area
It wants to be school

 Musashi school where there are many famous spots for its cherry blossoms in Nerima, but one adds junior high school, high school, university to. We hold "meeting watching cherry blossoms of Musashi school" and open the yard as well as graduate at the end of March every year toward the area.

 Fukuda reason, meeting of Musashi school memory room honor advisor having begun from 1995. There is row of trees of Yoshino cherry tree along the Hikaru River drifting to the school (we do), and weeping cherry tree and Prunus buergeriana and Prunus donarium of various kinds appointed to "nerimano fragrant wood of high quality" are in full glory. This Hikaru River was pump type now, but was ever arm of a river from Senkawa.

 "The surface of the water of Hikaru River froze of seventh grader me in winter. Then if teacher of chief is when "you must not make you, skating play". "It seems to be interesting!" as soon as we heard that though we did not hit Can break this if you get on together…. Education is difficult" (laugh)

 Fukuda who laughed so smilingly learned in Musashi school for six years of junior high school, high school. There was little number of students, and everybody seemed to make friends necessarily.

 "We began rare soccer with primary schoolchild and did in those days until it became dark in school grounds. It is still a pleasure to meet friend at the time in annual synchronization society and alumnus society"

 After the graduation, we acted as part-time teacher for four years for the graduate student era and, after experiencing Chiba University's professors, came back as the principal of the high inside in old school in 1997. What began in the same year "meeting of old school cherry blossom viewing." It is cherry blossom viewing held for graduate.

 "We thought that it should be old school which let graduate feel friendly feeling. As it is poor school, we cannot give feast" (laugh)

 Fukuda whom love to old school blurs on in some points of words. As it was the principal of such old school thought, students would be happy, too.

With environment where we were born and raised,
Encounter with good teacher becomes axis…

  When we ask about memory of Shakujii living in Fukuda boasting, "age of Nerima-ku is younger than me!" for 74 years…?

 "House which parent built in Shakujii is 2,000 yen! We did in this. shibarakuno train sometimes heard story after the war that ribs were broken with the crowdedness that was greater than now. When when is small, there is wheat field all over that place, and sail across when is shortcut, "heeey!" This was got angry at (laugh). Therefore it was the good times to have you forgive laughingly when you said, "we helped with treading barley plants"
Old tale of Nerima jumps out of this one after another.

 "We went to Togakushi, Nagano by relationship evacuation during war. Boss of neighborhood association is kind, and tell from mushrooms which you can eat to collecting of wild plants. Interest to wild plant was thing coherent to life"

 Even if come back to Shakujii, called if "leave the entrance field" at the time is as environment was a chance to have advanced to biology. And school camping trip when Musashi is in the first year of junior high school with another opportunity. 80-year-old authority of natural history that was able to come for instruction seemed to be very attractive.

 "For example, in front of "entrance at 5:00 a.m. as for the person wanting to listen to voice of chicken say with meeting", and tell from cry to the name, habit of chicken. He/she told various things while walking hills and fields to insect, the trees and plants, cloud in the day. When it was interesting, and "set" was played, we participated in all and were dark three days so as to still remember. This experience would influence the later life, too"

 Environment brings up people…Nerima should be such a rich place forever, too. Finally place favorite in Nerima?

 "It is open field before Shakujii apartment house is built if it is the old days, but is Shakujiikoen Furusato Museum and Makino memory garden now. We played ogre in the days of primary schoolchild and have escaped into Makino's house. It was Mr. Makino that thought that it was, "there is grandfather like hermit" in child feeling. To teacher, we might seem to be "one of the naughty boys who sometimes came"

 To mind of Fukuda laughing so teasingly, Nerima of those days still breathes wealthily.
