Just got the grant letter/of acceptance in the mail this afternoon. Free room and board for a week, plus it's in Saitama, arguably the most beautiful and meaningful part of Japan, and certainly a thriving metropolis.

Is anyone planning on going? Has anyone done this in years past? What were the classes like? What was the free weekend like?

Saitama sounds like the New Jersey of Japan, but I want this for me real bad.
