The first month of studying in VSUES came to its end for the students from Niigata University of International Culture and Information. In Japan the students study at the Faculty of International Culture specializing in Russia.
During the last month, Japanese students went through orientation, they improved their knowledge of Russian language and became more familiar with Russian culture and traditions. They visited various events: an excursion "Along Svetlanskaya street", master class of wooden spoons painting,  harvest festival and the fair "Hospitable Primorye".
One of the most interesting events was a folk festival "Oseniny". Celebrations were held in Pushkin's theater. The students tasted delicious soup, cooked food on open fire, visited a craft fair,  master class in applied creativity, they also watched an ethnographic film about Russian folk music and  danced the quadrille.
There are some reviews of the Japanese students about VSUES and Vladivostok:

"I love Vladivostok! The locals are very friendly. As for VSUES, it is very spacious and it is a home to many students, including foreign ones".

"Vladivostok is a big city with beautiful streets. The people here are very kind and friendly".

"At the beginning I had some difficulties. It is natural, as life in Russia is different from life in Japan. But then all my worries were overcome. You have very delicious food! Friendly people live in your city".
