This blog post is a photo trivia game! There are 15 photos below. Four of them were taken in Massachusetts this past weekend, as I was lucky enough to visit a beautiful lake, a river, and the Atlantic ocean. The rest of the photos were taken in Japan — in Tokyo, Kamakura, and Kushiro. Can you guess which ones are the American ones? Make your guesses in the comments section below, where it says “leave a reply.” If you are under 18, remember to use just your first name and last initial so that you are being careful about internet safety. I’ll post a comment with the answers on Friday 7/18.
Which photos were taken in the United States and which were taken in Japan?
Could you tell which ones were American and which were Japanese? If not, here’s a little hint. It’s a sign taken at the beach in Kamakura. Notice the different rules — tattoos in Japan are not allowed on the beach. Does this help you figure out which photos are Japanese?
As you can see, there are many similarities between water in Japan and the United States. However, we are lucky that we don’t have to worry about tsunamis like they do. Japan is made up of all islands, and it’s on a fault line, so there’s a big risk of earthquakes. When the ground shakes, the waves can be monstrous. If you live in the United States, be thankful that you can enjoy your coastline without this risk!
