Uniclub and Deni Isic, get my absolute warmest recommendation! I had a dream of coming to Japan that seemed distant and unmanageable, but Deni and the rest of Uniclub have helped me through the whole process.

I have just returned from my exchange stay in Ireland, which would not have been possible if it were not for Uniclub. If you are looking for an exchange as a freemover, then I can not recommend UniClub enough!
