  • Isaac Reynaldo, Carleton College
    Major: Cinema and media studies
    “Overall my experience was really great! I loved my host family; taking a trip with them to the alps in Nagano was probably my favorite experience, and they helped to improve my Japanese a lot.”

  • Robert Hanson, St. Olaf College
    Majors: Japanese and Asian studies
    “My favorite memory from my study abroad experience is probably a trip I took to the base of Mt. Fuji. I still vividly remember waking up to a clear, sunny morning to be greeted by the most picturesque view of the beautiful snow-capped mountain.”
