South Korea has everything: the longest subway system in the world, one of the most efficient writing systems, large and abundant forests, AND the world’s fastest internet connections (Take that, Netflix lag!).

The adventures were insane and I couldn't have done them anywhere else besides Costa Rica. And the people I met will forever hold a special place in my heart. I became so close with some students and my housemates, but I also met "Ticos" (Costa Ricans) that it almost broke my heart to leave them.
Traveling to Japan is an adventure waiting to happen and so long as you keep an open mind you will create more memories and friendships than you ever could have imagined. Through your classes, excursions, and walking around the streets of Tokyo you will experience the beautiful culture of Japan and leave with the wish to return to the great country again and again.
