Jiujiu Liu


Hi everyone, my name is Jiujiu Liu. I'm a graduate student from China and majoring in Education Program. This is my third year in this beautiful city. Actually, I fell in love with this city and this great university during my first year when I was an exchange student, I made a lot of friends and tried many things I've never imaged before, that's why I decided to also pursue my master's degree here.
Unlike Tokyo, Utsunomiya's life is less stressful, I have a lot of part-time job opportunities which helps me practice my Japanese. People here are so kind, there were several times I could not find an appropriate word to express myself when I talking to them, they were patient to help me out, at that time, I was so happy I made the right decision to stay here.
I love Utsunomiya University not only because it is a great place to study, but also it offers me a lot of opportunities to get in touch with different cultures. Till now, I have lived with three different local families, they all have treated me like their own child. We tried to plant rice, went to a hot spring and also celebrated Japanese New Year together, which helped me feel the real beauty of Japanese culture, thanks to them, I never felt lonely during my studies here.
Utsunomiya University is a really great place to live and study, if you have a chance to choose, don't hesitate, come to Utsunomiya University, it will never let you down.
