Almost every feature in university shows the cultural theme and background of students, which are mostly from high-income families. They spoke better English, compared to other Japanese that we had seen. Although we found most Japanese pretty shy, but in this academic atmosphere, they were friendly, helpful, and easy to communicate with. I’m glad to say I made friends there, and I’m still in touch with them.
