Study abroad in Paris

life in paris



You should think that Paris has a higher probability of encountering beggars, pickpockets, and paroles compared to big cities in Japan. Many of the victims are tourists, so it is necessary to pay attention to places such as crowded tourist areas and train stations that are easy targets. Avoid unfamiliar areas, unpopular places, and walking alone late at night.



Compared to Tokyo, the temperature is slightly lower throughout the year. Spring is chilly, but summer is pleasant with low humidity and comfortable. Autumn is short, and winter seems to come soon after summer. Heating facilities are in place, so winter is cold but comfortable. The time difference between Japan and France is 7 hours in summer time and 8 hours in winter time. (It will be changed in the middle of spring and autumn.)



Paris, the food capital, has restaurants from all over the world, giving you the opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of cuisines. In addition to the expensive restaurants, there are convenient inbis (light meal stands), Chinese, Italian, and Japanese take-outs, so it's convenient to use them as you see fit. Of course, self-catering is the most economical option.
