PostHeaderIcon Sapporo Japan, The Experiences

For the last 3 weeks I have been in Sapporo, Hokkaido Japan attending a 6 credit summer session that lasts from June 18th to July 18th. Classes are a mix of Japanese language, English lecture, and then a class held by our professor Henry-Sensei. University of Massachusetts, Portland State University, and University of Alaska Fairbanks are the 3 universities attending the program.

Almost all of us are staying with host families. Mine personally has been wonderful. I have two host sisters who are in grade school (Mi-Chan and Rena) and a host brother who is in middle school (Yoshikazu), plus my host mom and dad. We've had many many good laughs and they care a lot about me and how I am doing. They've taken me to as many awesome places as the University program has and I've taken pictures and videos along the way. Below are the pictures, links to my personal facebook photo albums. I still need to edit and upload the Miko Dance from the Shrine and the Hokudai Dance Club routine. Expect those on my you tube page by the end of the weekend =).

I hope you enjoy the pictures and if you have any questions or comments, please feel free to ask and leave them!
