Japan's advanced initiatives on protecting the environment give our students food for thought.
Japan’s initiatives to protect the environment are highly advanced, and the proper separation of garbage is helping to make the world more ecologically sound, and this gives our students food for thought.
With sports, meanwhile, it’s possible to achieve good mutual interaction without much exchange of words. The teamwork and spirit of cooperation that the students demonstrated was fantastic.

The daily lives, customs, and language use of the Japanese students left a deep impression on me.
During our recent educational trip to Japan, we visited three schools for cultural exchanges. Even though the exchanges only lasted three days, the daily lives, customs, and language use of the Japanese students left a deep impression on me. In particular, I thought that the way they separated their garbage on a day-to-day basis was wonderful. And during lessons they listened attentively, and the teachers and the students had lively conversations with each other.
Despite the language barrier, I talked a lot so that we would be able to communicate with each other.
As soon as I got out of the car, I received a warm welcome from the Japanese teachers and students, and the nervousness I’d been feeling evaporated in an instant. Despite the language barrier, I talked a lot so that we would be able to communicate with each other, and I worked hard to understand new things.
