JAPAN Akita
My semester in Akita was amazing! Akita is perfect if you want to really experience the deep culture of Japan. The university is a great place to learn Japanese language and offers many courses in English with Japanese students. The KEI Director really helped us adjust to life in Japan. I really loved Akita.
