Hello everyone. Going to Japan was and will be one of the best experiences of my life. I will never forget what I learned in while in Japan. I was part of the building program and what I learned was truly amazing. I will be able to teach my building class all that I learned in Japan. Learning to live with a host family was very challenging, but it will be one of the best experiences of my life. I will never forget my host family and I hope to go back to Japan and visit them some time.
Japan was the best experience I have ever had. My favorite part was staying with my host family and working at the school. I learned a lot from measuring to making different joints for houses. Over all, Japan was the best thing to ever happen to me and I would love to return in the future.
Going to Japan was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. The trip is something that I will never forget. Having a chance to indulge in the Japanese culture was wonderful. Some of the food may have been a little different and my yukata may have been a little to long and my host family may not have been able to speak English. But I would not have changed a thing. The time spent there was amazing. My favorite sight was the Hiroshima Peace Park. I will never forget anything that I saw. I plan on going back to
Japan and visiting my host family and I strongly encourage other people to visit. It’s an experience I will never forget.
What can I say that already hasn’t been said. Going t Japan was the best experience that I have ever had. The Japanese culture is quite different that the United States. The majority of the Japanese people live in the major cities. When you walk down the streets everybody almost always say hello to
you. I will always cherish the time I spent with my host family and classmates. If I ever get a chance to visit Japan again I will take it up in a
heartbeat. (Meaning = without hesitation)
There are three big things I noticed that make Japan far different from the U.S.. First of all the cars are microscopic compared to ours. Secondly, the food is outstanding. I thought that I would have a hard time getting use to foreign cuisine, but rice for breakfast is not as bad as it seems. The third thing is the hospitality of the Japanese people. My host family made me feel like a son, the school administrators showered us with gifts and everywhere we went people made every effort to make us feel welcome. If I had to live
somewhere else, Japan would be it.
The Japan trip was very memorable. Learning the Japanese culture was very interesting. I especially like getting up in the morning and walking to the school. Walking down the streets of Fukuoka was a great experience. My favorite sight was the Golden Temple. It was one of the most beautiful structures that I have ever seen. I hope that some day I will visit Japan again.
