OK, so this is a gallery about local school kids out of the school setting. The Japanese, like other Asian nations, study long and hard at school. Neat uniforms, and many many of them, reflect the neat minds of freshly regimented children learning to fit into the orderly society and work till they drop. But when school's out, you can be surrounded by swarms of pupils chatting on their way home. And they're all very polite and charming, which is something we could benifit from in some western countries !
