Prime Minister Shinzo Abe requested that all schools in Japan close for approximately 1-month at the end of February, and due to this closure, many students were not able to hold official graduation ceremonies. So, one group decided to hold a virtual ceremony in Minecraft. Twitter user “BackYenNew” has a son who attended this digital graduation and posted a short video of what exactly happened.
If this graduation ceremony sounds unusual to you at first, it’s because in Japan, the school year ends in March and starts in April. This is true for students in primary school, middle school, and even high school. Fortunately, for some students the coronavirus has not stopped them from enjoying life as usual.
