One of the many differences between Japanese and American elementary schools is Japanese schools often have swimming pools where kids learn to swim. In America, most kids learn to swim from their parents or by taking swimming lessons from their local community pool.


In today’s episode Yakko shares her experience in the pool, and discovered how the Japanese kids swam without goggles! Despite being a competitive swimmer (or perhaps because of it), this was a no-go for Yakko!
