Japan is a captivating and fascinating place for study abroad. The country is a dichotomy of worlds—from the serenity of bamboo forests and teahouses to its impact on the frontier of new technologies. The island nation of Japan features dense cities, imperial palaces, shrines, and mountainous national parks. Shinkansen, or high-speed bullet trains, connect Japan's main islands, creating a link between subtropical beaches, skiing meccas, and Tokyo, the nation's capital.

I feel really lucky to have completed a study abroad experience at International Christian University (ICU). I'm very grateful to the UCEAP Tokyo team for doing their best to make our experience as amazing as possible. I'm very lucky to have had the opportunity to connect with the community as much as I did. Even though I was only at ICU for half a year, it definitely made my experience 10 times more meaningful.
