The exchange life in Japan was valuable and unforgettable. During the period in Japan, I have experienced the difference between Japan Universities and Hong Kong Universities, especially in the learning environment. The most benefit point in living Japan is my Japanese level improved a lot during my stay in Japan. Since most Japanese could not speak fluent English in daily life, the social environment forces me to improve my Japanese level in order to communicate with Japanese and have a more pleasure life in Japan. I love Japanese cuisine culture a lot, especially Japanese sushi. To learn more things about sushi culture, I have tried to find different persons to teach me about the process to make sushi, operation issues related to sushi restaurants etc.
