Student Quotes

-From a student in Higashimatsuyama, Japan

I had the opportunity to go on a trip/tour the host university sponsored
for its foreign students. We visited a famous garden in Kanazawa, tradition
sites (including the Myojoji Temple), and the seashore. On the trip, I had
my first stay at a traditional style Japanese hotel. We also went to a
cultural theme park and watched some exciting ninja sword fighting.
