Come and join us in Kyoto, to learn about the meaning of hospitality, as well as to explore “Omotenashi” Japanese culture and history.
I decided to quit my job in my home country in order to study tourism and Japanese, both of which I love, in Japan. I started my Japanese studies after I came to Kyoto and came to like Japanese more and more, so that eventually I passed Level 1 of the Japanese Proficiency Test at a Japanese language school! Later, I entered Carriere in order to acquire the specialist skills needed to work in tourism, and I passed the National Examination for Certified Domestic Travel Service Supervisor during my studies.
There is no guarantee that you will succeed just because you decided to study abroad. Success requires your own hard work and a supportive environment. The reasons I chose Carriere were the fact that I liked the atmosphere during a visit to the College before studying there, the fact that you are able to acquire useful workplace skills in a thorough way while coming in contact with the workplace systems of the travel industry, and lastly because it leads to job opportunities after completion. I decided to study at Carriere because I believed my aspirations could be realized there. I am now making full use of the skills I picked up at Carriere as I look for a job. My dream for the future is to live in Japan and be involved in the travel work that I love. I want to communicate the joy of travel to lots of different people after broadening my own horizons through a variety of experiences and new environments as I look towards a bigger world. I have absolutely no regrets about deciding to study at Carriere!
I have always liked cooking, and since a young age I have wanted to work in the food service industry. My parents used to time live in Japan, so I decided to make serious efforts to study Japanese cooking, which is very popular in my country Taiwan. After studying for two years at a different Japanese language school, I entered Kyoto Culinary Art College.
I was worried that my Japanese language ability wasn't good enough for me to keep up with the lessons and whether or not I would get on well with the other students, but I was very relieved to discover that the college has a very “at-home” atmosphere and that the instructors listened sympathetically to anything you had to say. The practical lessons were in a “hands-on-training” style. You get a real feeling of developing your own skills each time you have a lesson as a result of the many ingredients you deal with and the lessons you take. Kyoto is Japan's ancient capital, and has numerous shrines and temples that have been designated as world heritage sites; with opportunities to see things such as no and kyogen, it is perfect for learning about Japanese culture. I learned so many things during my two years and I hope to make full use of what I learned in my future work.
