My name is Daniel van Delft. I’m 24 years old and a Master student of Japanstudies at Leiden University in the Netherlands.
This summer I will be one of your counselors during the World Campus – Japan Program. I started studying Japan because my math grades weren’t good enough to become a physicist, but ever since I came to Japan with the World Campus – Japan Program my fascination for the country just kept growing. I lived in Japan for 2 years during my studies and I can really recommend everyone to visit it. The food is delicious, the people are great and I think the traditional architecture and landscaping is among the most beautiful in the world.
The World Campus –Japan Program can bring you in contact with all of these things and even more. You will be traveling with people who come from all over the world and because you share many new experiences together, you will forge amazing friendships. The host families that you will be staying at will show you a side of the country that you will never get to see as a normal tourist, or even as a Japanstudies student! I could go on for hours about how great the program has been for me, but it’s more fun to experience it for yourself. I hope to see you in Japan this summer and as a staff member I hope I (and all the other staff) can provide you with an unforgettable time!
