[Homestay in Kuji-shi]

Homestay with the Japanese family is a special experience. This experience has greatly improved the bad perceptions of Japan, thanks to the warm hearts of Japanese family.

We exchanged souvenirs between Korea and Japan, asked questions about each other, singing together, wearing Japanese traditional cloths kimono, and performing Japanese traditional dance.

End of ‘JENESY 2018

We experienced the cultural experience of Japan well during this program. Kangwon National University and Kunsan National University will conduct the promotion of Japanese culture and food with experience.

I enjoyed a lot of programs that would not be experienced on my personal trip. I think it was a good opportunity to relieve some of the negative feelings of Japan against me, such as homestay, cow feeding experience, mushroom farm visit, making mamebu, Japanese style manners, and Japanese traditional dance. I hope this experience will be a good opportunity to advertise Japan to Korea. “Kuji is a beautiful city”
