This page introduces Misato J.H.S.(美郷中学校) in English.
Misato J.H.S. is in Misato Town(美郷町). Our town was established on November 1, 2004 by the merger between Senhata Town(千畑町), Rokugo Town(六郷町) and Sennan Village(仙南村).
Our town has many places of natural beauty and historic interest.
◇Battlefield of Later Three Years' War(後三年合戦)
Later Three Years' War is the military campaign in which Minamoto no Yoshiie(源義家) subdued the fractious Kiyohara family(清原氏) of northeastern Japan between 1083 and 1087 (only three of these years saw actual fighting).
In winter, its traditional event "Kamakura Gyoji(かまくら行事)" takes place and has been held for about 800 years. This event is designated as an important folk culture and a national heritage. "Takeuchi(竹打ち)" is known for as a peculiar and dangerous event. Townspeople exchange blows from thier bamboo poles to determine the succes of the year's rice harvest.
|◇Misato Lavender Garden(美郷町ラベンダー園)
"Misato-Sekka(美郷雪華)" is a unique lavender in the world because its flower is white.
|◇Springs and "Harizakko(ハリザッコ)"
There are many springs in our town. And Pungitius pungitius inhabit them. We call the fish "Harizakko(ハリザッコ)". The science club has been commended for their research into it.
On April 1, 2012 Misato J.H.S. was founded by the integration of three
junior high schools in Misato Town.
We have carried on the good traditions of those schools, and are establishing our new traditions in the spirit of cooperation.
Come together as one, for a better future.
Educate students to have a pleasant manner.
To be considerate of others
To build up their physical strength
To raise their intelligence
Reading many books and studying hard
