8 Interesting experience in Waseda or in Japan
The Waseda Keio rivalry is one of the most interesting thing I’ve exprienced in Japan. Its similar to the rivalry between Oxford and Cambridge and its interesting to see how passionate and loyal the students from each school are. Besides the constant supply of entertainment from all the sports events such as the annual baseball match, more importantly, I believe this kind of healthy competition motivates the students to strive for excellence and Universities in Singapore can learn from this interesting culture.
