Since our old­er daugh­ter had been in Japan for a 3-month intern­ship as part of her stud­ies in 2014, we took the oppor­tu­ni­ty to vis­it her there. The coun­try enchant­ed us. There­fore, her younger sis­ter also took the chance and com­plet­ed a for­eign study term in Tsuku­ba near Tokyo in the win­ter semes­ter of 2022 / 2023, where we also vis­it­ed her.


Japan 2014 / 2015

Japan! This was a des­ti­na­tion we had always thought about. An oppor­tu­ni­ty arose when our old­er daugh­ter went there for a 3-month intern­ship with a com­pa­ny in Osa­ka as part of her stud­ies in mechan­i­cal engi­neer­ing. We decid­ed to “pick her up” there after­wards and trav­el togeth­er through Japan for 2 weeks. We met her in Osa­ka and then vis­it­ed Kyō­to, Hiroshi­ma, Tokyo and the Fuji-san. Here I present some pic­tures tak­en dur­ing this won­der­ful trip. You can also find more infor­ma­tion and trav­el tips in our detailed detailed trav­el report.


Japan 2023

In Feb­ru­ary 2023, we vis­it­ed our younger daugh­ter who had just com­plet­ed her first semes­ter abroad at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Tsuku­ba. Togeth­er we trav­eled with her as a lin­guis­ti­cal­ly com­pe­tent guide for 2 1/2 weeks through Japan with the cities of Tokyo, Hiroshi­ma and Kyō­to. At the end we drove with a rental car to the Fuji-San and explored the sur­round­ings in beau­ti­ful weath­er. Since our daugh­ter already had a good knowl­edge of the Japan­ese lan­guage and was very famil­iar with the coun­try due to her stay there for sev­er­al months, we did­n’t feel so alien this time and expe­ri­enced Japan much more inten­sive­ly than before.
