Reviews

The students chatted with each other enthusiastically, and seem to enjoy the exchange, so I felt relieved

Although it was only a short time, the students began with brief self-introduction, after which they toured campus and had lunch. They then took a train to try their hands at making Japanese confectionery, so I think it was pretty full program. The students chatted with each other enthusiastically, and seemed to enjoy the exchange, so I felt relieved.
