On this page, you can see examples of a good conclusion paragraph.

What to write

You should have a conclusion at the end of your writing composition. You can start with まとめると which is ‘in conclusion’ in Japanese, but not necessarily.

It is more important to summarise what you wrote in body paragraphs in a conclusion paragraph. You can also write your opinion if you want.

How long

A conclusion paragraph should be around 10% of the whole writing.

Example

The examples below are all around 60 ji. You should have a longer conclusion if you need to write a more than 600 ji essay.
