Example presentation (high level):

Kōmyōji is a Japanese Buddhist temple in Katō City, Hyōgo, Japan.



It is located near the top of Mt. Gobu.



It is also called “Gobu-san”, after the mountain.

I used to live at the foot of Mt. Gobu.



There was a war between the Ashikaga brothers near the temple around the year 1352.



There is a memorial for the war behind the temple.



The image of the founder rests in the henjōin commemorative hall.



Throwing plates off of the mountain is a tradition for bringing good luck.



There is a deck that you can throw the plates off of.



The deck has a nice view.



The autumn leaves at Komyoji are beautiful.



The nearest train station is the JR Takino Station.

It takes about an hour to hike to the temple from the station.



The view from the parking lot is spectacular!



You should visit this temple.

This is an example of projects I sometimes use in teaching English.
英語の授業に使う一つのプロジェクトの例です。

The students choose a landmark (in this case) outside of Japan and find information about it.
学生は外国の(この場合は)名所を選んでその名所の情報を調べます。

Then they make a poster and present some of their research during class.
ポスターを作って、研究の一部を授業の間に発表します。

We use it to help the students gain confidence in composition and in making presentations in English.
このプロジェクトによって、学生は英語の作文や発表を経験し、若干の自信が着きます。
