Your time spent in Japan was for traveling, study exchange, visiting family etc?
Study abroad. My high school used to have an exchange between an Intl high school in Chiba Pref. Four of us were to go over. Three dropped out for various reasons so it was just me left (and a teacher). So our school decided last minute to drop the program. I fought the school board to go and won!! So I was the last one to go. I was in school for 2 weeks and up north in Fukushima Pref for 3 days.
