ホームステイ体験談

ホームステイ体験談

お名前:Mr. Gabriel Nicklin

◆ホームステイを選んだ理由 Why did you choose Homestay to stay in Japan?

I chose to stay in Japan to explore my love for the country, meet new people and decide whether I'd like to study it at university.

◆日本で便利・興味を持ったことはなんですか?What was/were convenient in Japan? What kind of thing were you interested in?

Everything is convenient in Japan! Everyone is so helpful and everything is easy to find and understand (with a bit of help). I was interested in visiting temples, shrines and of course all of the centre of Tokyo. I loved all the buildings and shops and the excellent architecture.

◆休日はどのように過ごしましたか?How did you spend your spare time in Japan?

I spend most of my time working at a business. Outside of that, I went away for a week to Mikura-jima to swim with dolphins. I also did karate, had tea lessons and ate great food at restaurants.

◆ホームステイ滞在中に驚いたこと Tell us the most surprising thing while you were in Japan.

The most surprising thing was how welcoming everyone was. In England, sometimes people can be a bit reserved if they don't know you very well. When I was in Japan, everyone I met was extremely polite and made me feel at home all the time. I loved it.

◆日本語が通じなかったとき、どうしましたか? How did you communicate with Japanese when you couldn’t explain it in Japanese?

Most of the time, the people I talked to had a little bit of English - far more Japanese than I had! So I could talk to them in my language a little. Other than that, I found it hard to communicate as my Japanese is so bad.

◆日本語はホームステイを通じて上手になりましたか? Was your Japanese ability improved during homestay?

Yes, I took lessons in the language so my Japanese became much better. Hopefully I'll practise and it'll improve even more.

◆日本滞在中の好きな食べ物は? What Japanese foods do you like?

I loved almost all the food I had there. From ramen to beef, and rice to lobster from Hokkaido, the food was certainly a highlight. I visited some incredible restaurants, but the best food was home cooked - like the soba we made ourselves at a party!

◆日本滞在中の嫌いな食べ物は? What Japanese foods do you prefer not to eat ?

There wasn't much I didn't like. I don't like a lot of spicy food, so too much wasabi was not great. But apart from that it was fine.

◆ホームステイのエピソード Please tell us some memorable thing or episode during your homestay.

I have so many stories! Well, one day my friend took me to Kamakura and we walked around temples all day. We only stopped for a little bit for cold soba for lunch - we walked the rest of the day. It was tiring, but I saw a huge number of shrines and had a great time. Another time, we had a party at the Watanabe household and saw fireworks from her balcony. It was amazing.

◆ホームステイをして得たもの Please tell us the thing that you got from homestay.

I learned that the Japanese are very polite and trustworthy, and you should never be afraid to try new things.

◆これから来る人へのメッセージ(事前に準備した方が良いものなど) Please write a messages to the people who are coming to Japan from now on.

Go to Japan! Get ready for a country like no other. You'll have a great time and you'll be treated well if you treat them well. Never be afraid to try new things and don't spend too much time in sun!
