What tree is this?

I live in Japan and last autumn planted some acorns my son brought home with him from a field trip. I have a lot of seedlings now but no real idea what the tree is. 

I suspect a chestnut given the leaves, but the acorns were small. The trees are also doing really well in normal soil rather than the acidic soil I read chestnuts seem to prefer. 

From the acorns, I think maybe I have stone oaks, but the leaves of a stone oak aren't like little saws. So I'm not completely sure. 

Does anyone know? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The acorns were like these.
