Cities

Osaka, Kyoto, & Hiroshima

This 10 day program takes students on an immersive journey through the culture of Japan, from its ancient roots to the modern day. Japan is heavily influenced by other cultures from around the world, is very rich and diverse, and stands as one of the most prominent cultures globally.

In this program, students have the unique opportunity for intimate cultural exchange with locals, through a traditional Japanese tea ceremony, kimono show, and weaving demonstration. A visit to the International Manga Museum in Kyoto gives students a chance to browse a giant collection of one of Japan’s most famous forms of multimedia, and learn about its historical roots in early Japanese art.

In extensive walking tours through Kyoto and Osaka, we visit famous temples, castles, pavilions, and the Bamboo Forest.  

Additionally, students will travel to Hiroshima to learn about World War II from the Japanese perspective, by visiting the Peace Memorial Museum and A-Bomb Dome.
