Going to class every day, and the workload, gave me a sense of what living in Japan would be like. I was able to learn Japanese daily, as well as have enough time in the day to study and explore the country.

The everyday classes are the most interesting thing for me. KCP is a place where many cultures intersect, and learning how to talk about that intersection in Japanese (sharing your own culture and asking about others) is really fascinating.

The trip to Yamanashi was amazing. We got to see a peach farm and although Mt. Fuji was covered by clouds, the countryside was still a beautiful sight.
