ICU_学生At ICU, I could learn in various fields that I was interested in such as music, translation, etc. As a result, I selected “Media, Communication and Culture” as my major and conducting graduation research on the translation of “Cartton and Cartoon film”. Dormitory on campus helped reducing concerns about life in Japan and buiding close relationships with many friends.
