This report focused on researching culture shock as it relates to Japanese culture and forming strategies for students to avoid it when studying abroad. The research was conducted in response to a perceived lack of information on how to deal with the differences between one's home country and Japan when studying abroad. The strategies were then tested when I spent one month studying in Japan, and revisions were made based on my experiences and the experiences of others.
