Posted on Kansai Time Out: Talk with the Hand: the State of Japanese Sign Language

Suzanne Kamata examines the state of Japanese sign language

On a typical spring morning, ten children, ranging in age from 3 to 6 gather in the kindergarten playroom at the Tokushima School for the Deaf. The teacher waits till she has everyones attention, sometimes calling out a name, and the morning song begins. Sensei, ohayo! Minna-san ohayo! (Good morning, teacher! Good morning, everyone!)
