Toshiya Iizumi
“Canada was relatively safe and English pronunciation was clear and beautiful, so I wanted to go to the University of Toronto. If you go to study abroad, you can make many overseas friends and experience things that you can not experience in Japan. There are lots of fun things to do, so enjoy your study abroad life!”
