Asfar Rashid: Japan, Land of The Rising Sun

by User Not Found | Feb 14, 2014

First week in Japan has been a tremendous experience in Kansai Gaidai University. It was dominated by the week long orientation program where students all over the world joined the program. In the last one week I have socialized with students and faculty from the various parts of the world and hence I feel like a global citizen. I made an appointment to meet some Japanese friends at the university campus to visit Osaka city. Osaka station was large, so I was nervous. When I asked for directions, the people always showed me the way with a smile. It gave me a good impression, so, fortunately, I could explore the city comfortably with friends. They showed me around Osaka. They treated me to Japanese foods such as sushi, yaki, and denbura. The Japanese cuisine was very good. We had a good time. After the day wonderful city tour of Osaka, the university arranged Kyoto tour which was filled with historic temples and mountains. Kyoto tour has been the best experience for me because I got the feeling of serenity walking around the beautiful Buddhist temples. Now, that my classes are about to begin, I am fully focused on my courses and represent Claflin University in the global stage.

Asfar Rashid is a sophomore at Claflin University.
