A must stop for history lovers, Aizu Wakamatsu is filled with Samurai bits of history everywhere, from tragedy to a beloved beautiful castle.
Yamadera is a famous destination from Sendai. A temple on a mountain, what could be more charming and traditionally Japanese.
The first place I had to explore at that time was Kawauchi. It was a typical Japanese suburb. The little houses and the thick green gave it a really charming feeling.
Sendai was the best I could have ever experienced in Japan. I think that my relationship with Japan would have been totally different had I stayed somewhere else.
Finally I got to Japan, time to clear my head from insecurities and doubts and stride forward until I get to my new home.
Before moving on to my personal experience I decided to leave a few interesting details about Japanese airports and services you can find there.
My take on Flights choices for Japan, at that time and general advice on airports and long flights.
Second and third on my to do list was VISA and Accommodation. The moment the student residence was recommended was a life changing one. I am so thankful
First thing on my to do list was Insurance. IAESTE wanted me to be protected in case the worst happened and required really strict insurance policies.
