My favorite course this semester. I really love this teacher. He is an awesome and fun guy. I love the videos and really appreciate his leniency for turning in late work. I would recommend his class for others!
We love you sensei!
Great teacher!
I guess I'm naive about how much pertains to the subject of geography but I was hoping to learn more about geographical features, places, etc of Japan as opposed to historical ways in which the country built on land and different planning styles to build cities. I felt as if a majority of the class material didn't quite pertain to geography and was more of a city planning type of class. However Yoshi Sensei is super cool and has a good sense of humour. He knows what he's talking about and I would definitely take another class from him.
Good course, I wish it was a bit more about the earthquakes (kobe and tohoku) since that's what was advertised.
