It was our random decision to become exchange students at the same time.

It was somebody`s we don`t know random decision to place us all in Wisconsin, so close to each other.

It really surprises me how random decisions can make friends forever. They did. From 3 different continents, speaking 3 different languages, having grown in 3 totally different cultures- we`re the greatest friends who decided to visit each other`s countries and see each other there each year.

Summer 2004 was the first year and the time for Japan!!! It was the greatest summer of my life and I cannot start describing how much fun I had and how wonderful that trip was!!!!

I joined VT when I started researching about Japan and had tons of questions and no answers. I found some awesome people here who had travelled there and were willing to share some really useful info. Now I feel it`s time for me to contribute, explain and guide as well, since I know quite a bit. So if you have any questions, don`t be afraid to ask. I`ll be building this page slowly to help make your trip to Japan as awesome as mine was!!! :)

ARIGATO!!!! :)

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:It`s different, it`s exciting, it`s everything you want!!!
  • In a nutshell:It`s the only country I`ve visited so far and can honestly say everyone should visit once in a lifetime!!!
