When you hear the word 'Japan', what do you think of? Does your mind fill with images of ancient temples or futuristic cities? Do you see visions of mist-shrouded hills or lightning-fast bullet trains? Whatever image you have of Japan, it's probably accurate, because it's all there. Not to mention Japan is one of the easiest countries in which to travel.
"Overall I had a fantastic time. My host family was fantastic and they made me feel at home. Japan offers many after school club activities which were a great opportunity to meet people and involve myself in traditional Japanese activities. I loved my host family. They were very generous and always patient with me. I feel very lucky to have been placed with such lovely people." Kirsty Rourke – Short program to Japan
'"My exchange… Where do I start? I think I should start with how much I have grown as a person, maturity wise and also in my independence (I traveled to Japan alone!) Since I have been here I have learnt more than I ever thought my brain could take. Before I came to Japan I didn’t really know Japanese so the moment I got off the plane was like a slap in the face, but one that I had asked for and wanted. Within a month I felt like I was home. I had friends, the best host family anyone could ever ask for and was used to Japanese life. I love learning the culture differences and visiting places that are unique to Japan. I am now half way through my exchange and I feel as if I understand the language and the people here. This has been the best experience of my life, words can't even explain, the only thing I can say is come and see for yourself!!” Penny - Year to Japan
