I took advantage of the three consecutive holidays last weekend to participate in a junior high school reunion. The place is Shinjiko Onsen in Matsue.
The graduation group in March 1963 of Kuroki Junior High School in Nishinoshima-cho, Oki-gun, Shimane Prefecture, which is no longer there. It is called “Sanpachi Kai” and has been held once every five years since it was gathered at the age of 42. Since turning 60, however, some people have said that once every five years is too late to make another commitment, so the event has been held every year for some reason since then.
There are 120 students in three classes. However, there are now 110 survivors. Nine boys and one girl died.
As can be seen from this, women are young and energetic. She is definitely an aunt, but she is powerful, and she overwhelms the men without any trace of her junior high school days. To put it bluntly, I felt that I had seen the epitome of the modern world at the reunion.
At reunions after the age of 60, the topics of illness, pensions, and grandchildren are common, and my reunion is not unheard of. It was also mostly men who were the protagonists of the disease and women who were the protagonists of the health laws.
That said, there’s a lot of cancer. There were 22 male participants, four of whom had been operated on for cancer within the last three years. However, what impressed me was that there were four of them, and they were all so energetic and cheerful that I even felt that they had become even more energetic after their illness.
He seemed to know how to keep the disease away from him and was very dependable.
