Intercultural conflicts occur when people enter a new cultural environment. To overcome intercultural conflicts, it is important to maintain an objective and analytic attitude through shared experiences with others or with a peer group. Based on this assertion, we created a support system for study abroad students. This research is a case study of a study abroad program, started in 2011, by the Faculty of Foreign Language Study at Kansai University, Japan. The role of social media (SNS) is discussed.
