I am planning a graduation party for my son, who will be studying Japanese.  I wanted it to have an Asian touch, and I'm looking for some fun ideas.  On some sites, I saw info on Japanses candy leis.  I was wondering if that's a purely Hawaiian tradition or if it's something that's done in Japan as well.  Also, if you have any other ideas I would love to hear them.

I don't know of my students doing anything special for graduation.  There usually aren't big parties like the type I went to and had when I graduated in the States.  Many of my students seem to go out with friends (bowling, out to dinner, to Disneyland or Tokyo, etc) .  Sorry that it's not too exciting. Wink 

The two traditions I can think of would be for before entrance exams (think ACT, SAT, etc).  Eating a kit-kat is supposed to be lucky, because it's a play on words (meaning success), and many go to a local temple to pray for good luck. 

So, I would instead have a Japanese themed party.
