The Sakura Science Exchange Program provided me an opportunity to know about the educational environment in Japan generally as well as Kitakyushu area particularly. From the chance of participating in the field trip to University of Kitakyushu in August of 2015, I could know about the advantages of decision to study abroad in Japan compared to other countries. Briefly, in my opinion, Sakura Science Exchange Program is absolutely a very useful and valuable program for those who are seeking a chance or wondering about study and life in Japan. This kind of program should be held annually in a wide framework if possible.
Until now, I have been living at Kitakyushu, Japan for more than 1 year. From my point of view, the living condition in Japan is really good with a lot of high quality services. Japanese people are very hospitable which makes me feel always cozy and enjoyable. For the study and research at university, the facilities are of course adequate and modern. My professor is very kind. He always spends a lot of time for listening to our ideas and problems that we face. And then, he gives us a lot of recommendation or solution on time. Japanese and students from abroad in my university are also very friendly, they help me a lot with things about daily life as well as work related to our study and research at the university. To be honest, now I am feeling happy with living in Japan.
For those who are wondering or seeking a chance to study in Japan: living and study in Japan will defenitely be an enjoyable and memorable experience for you, and only you (yourself) can find out how enjoyable and memorable it will be. I hope that Sakura Science can be helpful for making your decision in the future.
