Frankly, it seemed like the best. The other programs I looked at were either heavily geared towards Chinese and Korean students or prohibitively expensive. Plus, KCP has a long history and a LOT of alumni who openly praise the program online — and I hope to be among them!

I really enjoyed the lectures. Every single one of the lecture guests explained their Japanese culture and history points it was super interesting and informative. I am glad I got to learn about all these interesting culture facts and points through someone who cares and knows a lot about the subject.
