    Japan’s culture is unique: tt’s a marriage of traditional practices and western principles. The traditions are deeply ingrained in the people, young and old, and these practices dictate the way they behave. These are also seen in the way they interact and socialize with one another.

    Schools in Japan have notoriously high standards of learning at all levels of education. If you want to study abroad, you should definitely consider Japan.

    6. It’s not as hard as you think

    Although learning a new language can be difficult and intimidating simply because it’s so different from what you’re used to.
