Staying with a Japanese host family
When going to Japan on an exchange year, you will get to know a caring Japanese host family. The family is happy to welcome you into their home and to show you the best of the characteristic and fascinating country.
By living with a Japanese family, you will get a great insight into the different customs and traditions of Japan. You will notice differences regarding table manners, greetings, and social manners among other things. Be curious, open-minded, and ask your host family questions about the lifestyle and values if you are not sure how to act. This will prepare you well for your everyday life in Japan. Did you, for instance, know that they do not shake hands and that licking the tip of your chopsticks is considered as inappropriate behavior here?
