Staying in Japan for two weeks

October 10, 2019

Ruth, who came from University of Ghana to study at TUFS with a round-trip airticket supported by Toyota Ghana, sent us a hort essay. She wrote about her first impression of Japan and TUFS, and also her life so far. We are glad to know that she seems to like Japan and TUFS. We will support her studying and life in Japan until she goes back to her country next January.

Including Ruth and Clara, the other exchange student of fall 2019, Toyota Ghana has supported five students of University of Ghana to come to study at TUFS. We are grateful for their warm-harted support.


I am Ruth Ofori from Ghana and a final year History undergraduate student in the University of Ghana, Legon.

To be honest, Japan is an awesome place to be, with its discipline citizens.

With regards to TUFS, the school has a welcoming atmosphere. From the general staffs to the workers in the school are very polite, they treat students with respect and sincere love.
Lecturers make sure students clearly understand what they teach and required reading materials are made available, assignments as well are given everyday and dates to presentations, quizzes or examinations are communicated.

Life in TUFS to me, is condusive and comfortable. You have to know why you came to TUFS, what you want in TUFS and how to get it to be excellent.

Not forgetting Toyota Ghana Company Limited; the Managing Director and all his people, who supported my coming to Japan, God bless you; I am very grateful and will do my best over here.

Long Live Toyota Company Limited, Ghana!

Long Live TUFS!!
