I am also very interested in the Finnish culture and I hope that you could maybe teach me something about it. After the exchange year I hope that I will have more experience with living abroad, that I know more about Finland and the Finnish culture and that I’ll have some new friends. I also think that I might grow as a person."

Now, Japan has ranked around the middle of the world for a long time, so I go to Finland, and I want to learn that we need to live with happiness. And I want to make the most of the experiences, and I want to be a psychotherapist and help many people in the future. Another reason is that I love Finland so much. I have never been there yet, but I know nature in Finland is so beautiful".
