Remember that our task throughout the week is to create an information text about Japan, so each of your tasks should have a new sub-heading.


What is the currency (money system) in Japan? i.e English currency is counted in pounds (£) and pence (p)

  • Find images of Japanese money.
  • Do they have coins and notes like the UK?
  • What is the exchange rate of against the British pound? So how much is £1 and £10 worth in Japanese currency? 
  • Have a go at using a currency converter: 
  • Compare the price of some common items, like a loaf of bread or a bottle of coke in Japan and England? How much would it cost me for a dozen eggs to make an omelette? How much would I have to pay for a pair of jeans in each country? Investigate a few other items of your choice.


If I went to Japan, where should I visit?

  • What are the landmarks and main tourist attractions of Japan?
  • Make a list of Japanese tourist attractions then choose one to write about in more detail telling me as much as you can about what I can see and do when I am there. How much will it cost me in Japanese and English currency?


What sort of clothes do people wear in Japan?

  • Are there any traditional Japanese items of clothing?
  • Investigate Japanese traditional clothing.
  • Are there certain patterns for the tradition dress or can they be any design?
  • Do people still wear the traditional clothing? If so, when?
  • What clothes do Japanese people wear in their everyday lives?
  • Are there any famous Japanese clothes designers or brands?


Can you design your own Traditional Japanese outfit?

  • Choose your colours and designs carefully to represent you.
  • Can you incorporate any of the traditional colours or patterns too?
  • Don’t forget to consider the length of the sleeves as this holds a message too.
