Story of Yokohama

For Humanities, we had a project about The History of Yokohama. We had to do a presentation, and we needed to come up with a question. My question was How did Shopping in Yokohama Change throughout time? I used haikudeck for this project, using the iPad. We went to a field trip around Yokohama, but I couldn’t take many pictures because we didn’t do things about shopping much. I went around Yokohama, and took pictures about it afterwards. For my Presentation, all the pictures I used are the pictures that I took or the ones that my aunt took because she lives in Yokohama. I think the presentation did okay because I don’t think my script was that good, compared to the slides.

One of the slides that I used.

Story of Yokohama-How shopping changed throughout time

Story of Yokohama, how shopping changed throughout time.

This is China town, and this was made a long time ago. This was popular to daily shopping, but now it is mainly for tourists.

People shop more at Landmark Tower than China Town. It opened on 1993, which is quite recent.

The shopping population Yokohama Shopping Street decreased through time. The shopping street started before World War 2 as a place selling food and daily commodities.

Takashimaya is was built a long time ago, and is still popular. It is one of the buildings that are popular now, but the popularity decreased throughout time.

Another example is Yokohama Station. It was really popular for shopping before, but it isn’t popular now.

Costco opened in October, 2004, which is recent. It is very popular now, and one of the reasons is because it is recent.

The redbrick warehouse is another example of a recent one.

As I said, Chinatown changed a lot during history because first it was for daily shopping, but now it is more for tourists.

I think shopping in Yokohama changed a lot throughout time, even in about the last 50 years.

This was originally made for a presentation. This is the presentation, that I made.—ayano-education-presentation-xIAqY7M3vV

Reflection of Comic Book: Queen Elizabeth

Queen Elizabeth 1 changed the world by not being bossy as a queen. She fought the war with her servants, risking herself to die, even if she’s the queen. She also didn’t marry, for herself because her personal experience. She got betrayed by her boyfriend who just wanted money. She also suffered to be the queen because of her step-family and her father. They were very bossy, and she had to live in the corner of the castle. But the main reason was because she really loved England, she wan’t bossy as a queen. I think this world will be very different and bad if she didn’t exist.

What happens when one country controls another?

If one country tries to control another country, which is also called colonizing, usually a war happens. It is because the people that want to colonize want to take over the country, but the other country does not want the other country to control them. But sometimes, they don’t fight, because they already know that they are going to lose, or something bad is going to happen if you don’t obey them, or they simply just think that it’s better.

The reason why they get into a fight is not just that they want land, but lots of things are connected to that. An example is that they want the resources on the land, and sell it in a high cost. They also want to spread the country and their culture. In most reasons, it is for money, and resources, which also can be money.

When one country controls another, usually the colonized country doesn’t want to be colonized. They want to be free, and it usually isn’t fair to them. So sometimes they want to fight back, but they can’t, or they are afraid to. But sometimes they just like to be colonized. It can be because the country is a disaster, or maybe because it’s just better.

But on the colonizing side, they think it’s better. They can get extra money, they can get resources, they  can make the country their country, and more. They have the right to use their country to set up a base, or they might even use it for war. If they have that country, when a war happens, they can make a flight even closer and it is easier to win the war. They can also use the country as a slave to serve the country.  cc licensed ( BY ) flickr photo by Magnus Akselvoll  cc licensed ( BY ) flickr photo by ken wilson lee
