My experience in Japan
My name is Joe Kinuthia Wambu, I left for Japan on the Teacher Training program on 31sept 2013 for one and a half years.
My experiences in Japan were awesome and in different categories ranging from the environment, Japanese traditions and culture the food, language and the Japanese people.
My ambition to study in Japan begun a long time ago when I was in primary school learning about fishing between Kenya and Japan. I had a wealth of information about Japan and all I wanted was to have a first-hand experience of it.
I started my intensive Japanese course after induction from the Hyogo international hostel where I was to stay for 6 months while undertaking my Japanese language course. The sensei (lecturers), were of great help. I was the first Kenyan at Kobe University to study intensive Japanese course, because of this I realized that the university’s expectations and that of my fellow international students was very high.
