Over the next few days, I will be posting a series of blog posts intended to help students embarking on study abroad programs in Japan. I was fortunate enough to spend the 2012-2013 academic year in Tokyo at Waseda University’s School of International Liberal Studies as an exchange student, and want to offer some of what I learned as advice to students bound for Japan.
My experience, of course, is my own. My articles will tend to focus on Tokyo and even the neighborhood I lived in, as that is what I know best. They’ll also be primarily oriented to undergraduate students from the United States of America. However, I hope that these will be useful to students considering different learning abroad programs throughout Tokyo, Japan, and even other parts of Asia or the world.
