Experiences in Japan
The most important skill that I acquired during my life in Japan is communication with people of different nationalities. I got wonderful experience of socialization and friendship. My English skill has been improved significantly, so I want to visit many countries in the world. I also learned and saw many new things in life in Japan. I learned how to live in Japanese hostel, learned traditions, dishes, culture and way of life. I also visited Japanese family in Wassamu town, where I took part in a snow festival. In Sapporo I visited various events and exhibitions, and also visited interesting sights. The most memorable event was a trip to the Makomanai cemetery on Buddha hill made by the architect Tadao Ando.
