There seems to be a much stricter emphasis placed on school, compared to other cultures.
In fact, some cultures are almost humorous the way they handle schools.

The academic year in Japan begins on April 6, during the flowering cherry. The first trimester lasts until July 20, followed by the big summer holidays, September 1 is the start of the second trimester, the winter holidays are from December 26, and the last third trimester lasts from January 7 through March 25.
