Writing

I had watched a video about the ceremony ofJapan this morning. According to the video, the king and his family acrossed the corridor. Women dressed robe which looks like ancient clothes. There had no music or someone talk anything. They were smiling while they were walking. Women’s faces were too white so that I fell the scene was horrible. The imperial palace of Japan is clean and beatiful which looks like Chinese Tang dynasty building. Because that dynasty developed so well that people from nighbouring countries came to study art, trade and architecture. Actually, I spend five minutes in watching the short video. Because it is too boring.

They were smiling while they were walking. Women’s faces were too white so that for me the scene was horrible. The imperial palace of Japan is clean and beautiful it  looks like Chinese Tang dynasty building. I believe that it looks this way because the dynasty developed China so well that people from the neighboring countries came to study art, trade and architecture.
