I have always been interested in Japan. Amazed by its culture, language, people, art and technological prowess. It has been amazing so far to finally experience life in Japan. Before coming here, I have been hearing and reading lots of interesting things about Japan, but just like anywhere else, there are worrysome facts like how susceptible it is earthquakes due to geological disadvantages. However that didn’t stop me from coming here.
The first few months were indeed difficult and wonderful at the same time. With the constant huedle of KANJI characters making it slow and somewhat unnerving to move around alone so, I muster some courage and just go for trial and error which is most of the time an effective method to learn. It has always been a challenge since then. Another hurdle would be the prices of commodities as it has been notoriously high even in global standards. Finding very affordable places and things have been easy with the help of people around me and for that I am thankful. I really am grateful the my school’s helpful staff that understands our worries and looks out for us in many ways. I am still far from my goals, but as one inch towards it. I try to change and adapt for the better and for the future. I will continue further and will do my best. Aside from all of these,it has been great to see such,culture,meet respectful and wonderful people, visit beautiful place in this marvelous country with a challenging yet snblim language. I have no regrets.
