Hiroaki Kitagawa - at home in Ada

Story and photo by Jake Dowling, Icon summer intern
Ishikawa, Japan, and Ada, Ohio, are two completely different places. Just ask Hiroaki Kitagawa.

“My hometown has about 400,000 people, it is much more relaxed and it is easier to connect with people you don’t know here,” he said. “So that is one major difference between here and back home.”

Kitagawa, 26, is a postgraduate student who majored in computer science at Waseda University, a private university located in the northern part of Shinjuku, Tokyo, Japan.
As part of Waseda’s program, Kitagawa is enrolled as a foreign exchange student at Ohio Northern University.
