Hello! I am writing a short essay in Japanese about my hometown. I need it to say the following: The town I am from is neither big or small. There is a college called CCSU where I am a student. We also have a library and a bookstore with many books. I go there everyday with my friends. In my town, there is a Buddhist temple which I attend. I also go the park and take photographs. There are also many restaurants which have very good food. Finally, there is an art museum that many tourists come to see. That is my home town.

@relentlesschaos 私の出身の町は大きくとも小さくともない、ごく一般的な町です。CCSUという大学があり、私はそこの学生です。町には本屋さんと図書館があり、蔵書の数は結構多く、毎日、友人たちとそこに出かけています。 また、町には仏教のお寺があり、私はよくそこに参拝したりしています。公園に行って写真を撮ったりもしています。 レストランの数も結構多くて、食事はみな美味しいですよ。そして最後に紹介するのが美術館です。多くの観光客が訪れ賑わっています。 以上、私の町の紹介でした。
