What I did before:

I joined EIC’s 15th anniversary in 2015 in Chiba, 5th Tohoku Trip and also 3rd OST in Thailand in 2018. In 2017, I went abroad to Spain for two semesters to study Spanish language. I wanted to be able to speak Sapnish as a third language after Japanese and English.

What are you doing now?

Now, I am doing internship and taking a year break from university. I internship is about transmitting Japanese culture through the world. Now I am still learning it and enjoying it. I am happy that people all over the world are interested about Japan.
So I am also studying about Japan more now. In my days, I go to internship in the mornings and at night I am making preparations and planning my travel around Japan. I have to prepare many many things…..

 Way to university!!  Hola como estas in Spanish  Hi Mate! How are you today (Australia)

♠ Why do you choose the things you are doing now?

I am studying about Japan more because when I travel all around the world I can introduce about Japan to foreigners. I am studying what the foreigners wanted to know about Japan and think about what media I can use to introduce Japan.


♦ How EIC influenced your life?

Experienced of EIC encourages me to know more about the world. 

It gave mTomoya_EICe a chance to know about other countries and their cultures.


♣ Next challenge:

My next challenge is to travel all over Japan!


♥Message to EIC family:

To know own country is to travel around the country.

And also don’t forget to enjoy life.
