Sakura Science Plan was the first chance for me to visit Japan and have experiences about university and life in Japan. It motivated me to come back to Japan and explore Japan. That visit left deep impression in my mind until now.
I am now a MEXT scholar. My professors really care about students in the department and they are always willing to consult with their students in case of trouble. I made some new Japanese and international friends and thanks to them, my life in Japan becomes more memorable. Studying Japanese was also a memorable experience for me. I also appreciate that the volunteer tour guide group in my city often hold events and gives explanation to foreigners about Japan tradition, custom, festivals, etc.
Japan is a great country. Even if you like traditional Japan or modern Japan, you will never run out of things to explore. I hope that you will choose Japan as your destination for your higher education. Please come and find your own Japan.
