The new term starts in April in Japan.
This is just the season of entrance examinations, so lots of examinees are spending uneasy days.
To cheer them up, some different types of charms have recently appeared.
This pentagonal pencil is one of them.
The word "pentagon" is pronounced "gokaku" in Japanese, which is the similar sound of the word meaning "pass".
There might be some students having pentagonal pencils
in their pencil case.
Good luck to examinees!
