4 appeals of studying in Hiroshima!!

現役留学生に聞いてみました!

Appeal1:An environment where students can study feeling reassured

In Hiroshima, students can concentrate on their studies feeling reassured thanks to the warm weather throughout the year with little damage from earthquakes and typhoons, not to mention its low crime rate.
In addition, they can keep living costs relatively low compared to metropolitan areas such as Tokyo and Osaka.

Appeal2:Students can enjoy both the city life and nature

Hiroshima, the largest city in the Chugoku Region, has plenty of places to shop and hang out and is very convenient with extensive transportation systems. And on the other hand, it also has many places to appreciate the nature such as beaches and mountains.

Appeal3:Good food

You can enjoy all kinds of food unique to Hiroshima such as Hiroshima-style okonomiyaki, oysters, maple leaf-shaped steamed buns called momiji-manju, and dipping noodles called tsukemen.

Appeal4:Many fun events and tourist sites

Hiroshima has many different seasonal events and festivals.
Hiroshima is also appealing to those who want to enjoy sports and entertainment, with a domestically-popular professional baseball team (the Hiroshima Toyo Carp) and a professional soccer team (Sanfrecce Hiroshima), both based in the prefecture, not to mention a professional orchestra (the Hiroshima Symphony Orchestra) which is rarely based in rural areas.
