Sewing, & Name Tags

There are no towels in the bathrooms, so they have to bring their handkerchief, I found this one and I ironed on the bus patch and wrote their names.

Part of their math set, everything has to have their names. This took me hours to do.

I know the Japanese are efficient and very detailed, but I never experienced it first hand-the fact the student's names have to be on everything-literally everything. From clothes, shoes to math sets containing thousands of small parts, to pencils. It is amazing how they keep track of everything, thus they don't lose anything. They do not waste anything and make sure you have exactly what you need: not more, or less.
