3. Studying in Yamagata, or, as I can say, Tohoku, is a blessing for me. As a person who really likes outdoor places, this outdoor area in Tohoku is very magical, not only in Yamagata prefecture but also in its neighborhood prefectures! My Japanese friend always took me to a special place in Japan. We really liked one thing: exchanging knowledge about our culture, including our national language. One day, we decided to go to our neighborhood prefecture, Niigata. We talk quiet often in the car, and he decided to take me to Yahiko Shrine and tell me everything about Yahiko. Even though my friend is from Gifu, he understands the history really well!
