People who know me, know how much I love Japan: I love the culture and especially the language.

After high school, I studied in Venice and obtained the Bachelor’s degree in Languages and Cultures of Eastern Asia at Ca’ Foscari. During the last year, I had the opportunity to travel to Japan, where I attended the Kyoto Institute of Culture and Language school for the spring semester. It was an amazing study abroad experience in Kyoto, where I lived with a Japanese family and participated to many cultural and traditional activities like “Hanami” (Cherry Blossom Festival) drinking green tea while watching the beautiful cherry tree flowers. I also visited Tokyo for two weeks during the Golden Week and travelled with the Shinkansen. Tokyo reminds me of New York City, but it’s awesome nonetheless!
