Living in a home stay instead of an apartment was one of the best decisions I made on this trip. My host family was kind and welcoming and within a week I felt like a true member of the family. The two chidren were so much fun. They soon called me big brother and we would play together every day. My family only speaks Japanese so my Japanese has improved so fast.

Voices from Participants!

As well as this my host mother would cook delicious Japanese food for us every night and even asks me what I would like most for dinner. On some nights I would cook and everyone would gather round so I could teach them my recipes. I can’t think of any better advice to other Japanese exchange students than to stay with a host family. They will always be a second family to me.

Staying with the Shimoji family while in Japan was an amazing experience. Throughout mystay they were very accommodating and genuinely cared for my well being, always asking if there were any foods I would like to try, anywhere I would like to go. My Japanese also greatly improved as they also helped with me my homework. The homemade food was always delicious and they always made sure to cook me something new to try.

Voices from Participants!

I was always immersed in their culture and had the opportunity to experience it all. They were the nicest people and I was so glad to  have met and been given the opportunity to stay with them.
