Top 3 Things I'm Packing For Tokyo

by Emery

I'm still wrapping my head around the fact that in less than twenty-four hours I'll be departing from LAX and taking a twelve-hour flight to Tokyo, where I'll be staying for the next four months studying Japanese language and culture. I’m lucky enough that I can say this isn’t the first time I’ve been to Japan—my mom grew up in Yokohama and we used to visit her parents every so often when I was younger.

Nagoya, Japan, Month of June

by Akina

Studying abroad at Nanzan University this summer was very busy, but very fulfilling. I learned so much, and even though every day was a struggle, every day was worth the experience. Us international students often had field trips or activities on Wednesdays, and the other days were full of Japanese language learning. I would tag along with friends I have made along this experience to places such as Osu or Sakae shopping district. I also got along with my host family and my classmates well.
