Trip-related background
  • Japanese language ability:
    • Conversation: Intermediate
    • Reading: Basic
    • Writing: Intermediate



  • Previous travel experience:
    • My family traveled a lot when I was growing up so I'm used to being in planes and cars for long periods of time. I'm also used to languages switches since we usually travel through Mexico.



What I like about Japan / Japanese culture:

I like the contrast between the way American people act and the way Japanese people act. I also like the way the houses are arranged and the continuity of older culture in one of the most advanced places in the world.

What I hope to get from this adventure:

I hope to better my ability to listen to conversations and my ability to carry out conversations. I also want to experience the culture while applying the Japanese I know.
