To finally get the chance to go meant an opportunity to explore a world entirely different from my own and to immerse myself in a rich culture going back thousands of years. Kyoto's highlights were definitely the vast array of temples and shrines spread throughout the city and, of course, the people. One shrine I visited in particular, Fushimi-Inari, was composed entirely of approximately one thousand red gates snaking along the side of a mountain. The sight was completely overwhelming and took an entire day to explore. My adivce to those wishing to study abroad is to get lost. If you don't set a destination for yourself, you'll find yourself in interesting places that you would have otherwise overlooked. "
