“It was an eye opening experience to what it is like working in Japan. Even though the monthly stipend was a little bit lower than normal, the company provides food, housing, round trip flight costs, and daily transportation money. The team I was working on was very patient with me regarding the language barrier. Although I speak some Japanese, business Japanese is very different, so often times it was very difficult for me to keep up with meetings, but my team members would be very willing to clarify anything for me during or after the meetings. ”
