🔷 Hometown: Keio Senior High School

🔶 Why I became a BSAJ member: I myself attended elementary, junior high and high school and Japanese schools until the third year of high school, and I was the first third year high school student to have the opportunity to study at an American boarding school. This year, in which I was able to work hard, learn and grow with excellent friends from all over the world in an environment based on completely different values from Japan, was an important turning point in my life. I want more students like me who were born and raised in Japan to have the opportunity to experience this kind of experience at least as one of their career paths! I joined BSAJ with the thought. I hope I can help more of you!
..
🔷 Activities at BSAJ: I graduated from boarding school in June of this year, so I would like to answer your questions based on the latest information. Also, as I mentioned earlier, I have lived in Japan for a long time, so I will answer any concerns or questions about studying abroad at a foreign boarding school based on my experience. I would like to!
..
🔶 If I hadn't decided to enroll in a boarding school: I went on to a third year high school with my friends around me and was studying at a Japanese high school. I don't think it's inferior, but the choice to study abroad at a boarding school has definitely led me to experiences and days I've never touched before. Therefore, those who are uncertain about going on to higher education. If you are wondering if it is best to go to a Japanese school as it is, I would appreciate it if you could consider the option of going to a boarding school or studying abroad!
..
🔷 Fun in boarding school life: After all, it's a dormitory life! You can stay with your friends 24 hours a day, every day until night, play with them, learn with them, and meet friends who share food, clothing and shelter. Also, in terms of academics, I emphasize different aspects from education in Japan, so I was able to absorb a lot of things from Japan, which was very fun and interesting. In addition, extracurricular activities are also substantial, and club activities, philanthropic activities, sports, etc. have a high-level and high-quality curriculum!
