I originally attended a Japanese language school in Iwate Prefecture. Iwate is a really easy place to live. At Iwate University, my studies are focused on the internationalization of corporate management and administration. Teachers and staff are kind and really support the international students so that we can live our lives as university students in Japan with peace of mind.
