Exchange at Kansai University – By Rachael Grimshaw

Throw Back Thursday – Jasmina Cubelic (Japanese Media Industries and Cultures Study Tour)

My experience in Japan – by Yasmin Bottos

I am a fourth year university student studying in Okayama, Japan. Many people asked me why I chose to study in a smaller city like Okayama when there are obviously merits to living in a big city (more options for entertainment, more of a cosmopolitan ambience, generally more exciting, etc).
