Nagoya University has a 144-year history, dating from when the Temporary Medical School/Public Hospital -- the forerunner of today's Nagoya University -- was established in 1871. The University became the last Imperial University of Japan in 1939, and the educational reforms in 1949 led to the beginning of Nagoya University under the new education system.
Nagoya University has established the Center for Student Counseling to strengthen its counseling system for Japanese and international students, by providing general consultation as well as mental health and career counseling, and to ensure that students have a rewarding university life.
There are six Nagoya University residences available to international research fellows: International Residence Higashiyama, Researchers Village HIGASHIYAMA, Noyori Conference Hall, Idaka-cho Residence, Researchers Village DAIKO, and Researchers Village YAKUMO.
The University Libraries, consisting of the Central Library, Medical Library, and libraries in each school/graduate school, provide services as centers for academic information with the objective of supporting education and research activities.
In recent years, to keep up with globalization and the evolution of information, the University Libraries have started providing a variety of academic information in digital formats, including e-books, databases and electronic journals.

My advice is to make as much local friends as possible. Japanese people are usually shy and, although they love to meet foreigners and they are quite curious about different countries, they would not make the first step. If I could do it over, I would spend more time with local students. The courses were interesting, also because teachers wanted students to interact...
The obvious answer is :"I would avoid the other international and French students". But to be honest, being in that "exchange year bubble" for a year was amazing, so I would not do anything differently. Even for the cultural misteps: it leads to awkward situations sometimes, but it would have been so boring if I knew everything before even going!
