What is a school day like in Japan?

students may leave their home around5 or 6 in the morning and ride the triain for an hour or so depending on how far they live and enter school. the classrooms are rather small. when the teacher enters the room all the students rise and bow to their teacher to show respect. The day is filled with complex studies on class is English. after school (students eat lunch in the cafeteria) students are in assigned groups that receive chores to clean the room or bathrooms. there are after school activites and clubs. Often a student is in some study group that goes until 7 at night.
