About Podcaster...

soichiro matahiraHi, I'm Soichiro Matahira and from Shizuoka, Japan. This is my second year at Pacific University. I'm studying Media Arts and Chinese. I made this web site and podcasts as my senior project. This project focuses on two things, exploring different cultures because I'm studying abroad in the United States, and I was always wondering how other people who went abroad from Pacific University thought about different countries, and cultures, and also showing what I have learned through my major, Integrated Media. This project may benefit people who are thinking about studying abroad in the future and even people who are interested in different cultures as well.
