The people here are for real, diverse.  You got all sorts of humor here and many more personalities.  Within my first week, I was able to meet and make friends with so many people.  I've met people from the states (USA), Australia, Germany, Macao, Czech, France, Italy, Mexico, Thailand, Taiwan, Singapore, China, Norway, and Switzerland. I've even met people from all over Japan.  I've met people from Okinawa, Osaka, Kyoto, Tokyo, Tochigi, Yokohama, Chiba, Iwate, Hokkaido, and of course, Akita.  So many things have happened in 5 days, I don't even know where to start.
