This was Yoshi's summer holiday study project that he thought up all by himself. He wrote a one line summary for each emperor that reigned in Japan from about 700AD until the end of the last era which ended in about 1989 (can't remember exactly, shame....!)
After it was written, he added a decorative cover and rolled it up. This counted (as far as I was concerned!) as his free study, essay, summer reading and craft project. After all the poor kid only had three weeks summer and had all that PLUS a diary, (for the teacher to check up on whether they spend each day in the "proper" balance of work and study... I told him not to write that; it's none of their business) and 27 pages of worksheets. I am not exactly sure when their holiday was supposed to be......
Still, his project turned out beautifully and I'm really proud of the hard work he put into it.
