 Tips for future participants (From  65 participants in the year 2015)

What do you think they should bring to Japan?

・some comfortable walking shoes (you will walk a lot)
・sun protection cream
・Toiletries (soap/shampoo/conditioner/toothpaste)
・an umbrella (you can buy one at a 100 yen shop but strong winds destroy those easily.)
・Some souvenirs (visual materials from your country will come in handy!)(for home visit family)
・a lot of money (if you will buy a lot of souvenirs)
・Conversation skills

Things you probably won't need

・towels (they are provided)
・so many clothes (there is a laundry service.)
・cups
・Tissue paper
・too much baggage!
・adapters; In Yamada Denki, you can buy adapters really cheap. Visit that place first

What kind of preparations do you think they should do before participating in the program?

・Look up all possibilities of transport (bus, trains, plane, bicycle…)

・Practice lots and lots of small talk in Japanese!!!
・Revise vocabulary, kanji. Practice writing and hearing.
・The level of the participants is very high, so you have to prepare very well before coming.
・Study more to be able to communicate with everyone in Japanese, so it is better to work hard before coming to this program.
・Prepare self-presentation speech.

What attitude do you think they should keep during the program?

・Speak in Japanese as much as you can, it will be a good practice and also some people might even be thankful for it.

・Be on time always! Japanese people are always punctual.

・Energetic and positive.
・Try to participate in all the activities.
・Gain as much as new experience possible.
・Keep an open mind! Japanese food maybe an acquired taste, but you may enjoy some things if you are open-minded.
・Don’t sit in your room, go explore the center.
・Use your free time wisely and go out to explore the city. Not only famous tourist attractions, but also smaller parts of the city. See local life.
・Go to sleep early! Rest is important!

・You should spend your money wisely.

・Be friendly! You will be surprised how close you can become with the other participants in just 2 weeks.
・You should try to talk to everyone! There are a lot of good people participating and you can make many good friends!

・Please talk softly well when you are travelling together in a large group.

・Realize not everyone know a lot about your country so some prepared to answer all kinds of questions.
・You represent your country not only yourself. So you have to do your best for all the duration of this program.

・All your best! It will be the best 2 weeks of your life!!!
