dc.description.abstractThe author addresses the disparity between the number of Japanese students coming to America to study and the number of American students studying in Japan. For example, in 1996-1997, according to Institute for International Education (HE), there were approximately 45,000 Japanese students studying in the U.S., compared to a mere 2,018 U.S. students. The author considers two main questions. First, why is there an imbalance of exchanges between the U.S. and Japan? And second, what motivates American students to study in Japan? The author considers the cultural differences between the two countries, trends in Japanese language study in the U.S., study abroad trends, and conducts her own survey of recent study abroad students.en_US
