School kids in Japan create adorable graduation in Minecraft

There's a video of one kid giggling his head off and it's as cute as it sounds.


Maybe this could be the start of more Minecraft graduations.


Aside from the most complicated toilets out there, Japan is the home of Disney-themed Nintendo Switches, Pikachu parades and the cutest graduation ever to exist -- in a video game.

As schools close across the world in a bid to help stem the spread of the coronavirus, kids from one elementary school in Japan (via SoraNews24) banded together and created their own virtual graduation ceremony in Minecraft. And they weren't told to do it by teachers or parents.

"What are you doing?" Japanese Twitter user @backyennew's post reads (translated by SoraNews24), showing the virtual graduation his son had put together with his friends.

"We all decided to have a graduation ceremony together!" his son replied.

"Oh? Awesome. The elementary students gathered to start graduation themselves."

Here's an adorable video @backyennew posted of his son loving the virtual school sendoff.

Like many school kids across the world, elementary students in Japan won't experience their graduation ceremonies. Japan's school year finishes up in March, but almost all schools have already been shut for around three weeks.

In the US, schools in 46 states have closed up shop and parents are turning to online resources for education and entertainment. If you're one of them, thankfully there are plenty of at-home options to keep the learning momentum going.
