A Deaf senior was introduced in the daily column of Asahi Shimbun newspaper, "Tensei, Jingo (天声人語)".
Kohsaka Mamoru,73, graduated from the night junior high school in Nagoya-shi, Aichi Prefecture.
He lost hearing and was hardly able to go to school in boyhood.
He made up his mind, after working as a stone craftsman.
For two years, Kohsaka learned in the night junior high school with full attendance and won the reward for it.
said, "It was an instant . When I didn't work one day in my craftsman
days, my daily allowance decreased. It is natural that I was not absent
from the school."
