Not too easy. Not too difficult.
I never knew I would be drawn to studying Japanese politics. Professor Scheiner makes everything engaging and entertaining. You can tell he truly loves this topic and his enthusiasm is contagious.

The highlight of this course is being able to understand Japan in a completely different way. Understanding the politics of the country help to also understand the culture.
