I was studying all the time when I was in my home country. I wanted to take a break and have different kinds of experience for my life other than studying. I was thinking to take a vacation in a foreign country. I have been interested in Japanese culture, and I thought I can enjoy it, so I decided to come to Japan.
How is a school life in Japan? Did you make any friend?
I made three friends. They are from the United States and Mexico. They are so great and one of them even invited me to her wedding.
What is your best memory of your stay?
There are so many so it is hard to choose one. If I had to pick one, I would say when I went to Omi-Maiko beach in Shiga prefecture. I went there with most of my friends and enjoyed BBQ at the beach. Many people came and it was really fun.
What was your image of Japan? Did your image of Japan change after arriving?
My image of Japan was that Japanese people are very friendly, have great culture, and the climate is very comfortable to live. I knew it is a great country before I even come here, and it was exactly what I thought. I didn’t have even one thing that I was disappointed. All things I experienced here are very positive experiences.

The location of Ginkakuji House is perfect for me. It is a beautiful place, and you can use a bus as a transportation without any problem. I have experienced an earthquake, but there was no problem in the house. It is also very convenient that I can use Paypal for rent payment.
