Vulcanus in Japan 2003-2004

On this page the adventures and experiences of the 7th Vulcanus in Japan group are displayed.

Therefore a small introduction:
The Vulcanus programme is a Joint-Venture of the European Union and Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry. To speak shortly, they select a number of students and send them to the other side. There they have to survive a 4 month intensive language course and then they do an traineeship for 8 months in a company. In a whole, they spend one year.
More informations can be found on the web page of the programme, which is located at

This Vulcanus in Japan programme lasted from 1. September 2003 to the end of August in 2004. As you already might have guessed, the author of this page was a participant in the European side of the programme. I will give some impressions about and from Japan at this place.
If you have further questions, feel free to contace me.
