Japan is an island country where ancient traditions and modern culture fantastically collide to result in one of the most unique eastern societies in the world.

Exploring Japan means being immersed in centuries’ worth of ancient traditions and customs that are oftentimes still practiced today. We visit the most beautiful and infamous shrines, temples, castles, and more to learn about and sometimes participate in Japanese traditions, while learning more about its rich history and the leading religion of Buddhism.

In our cultural studies programs, we take part in a variety of cultural activities, including a traditional tea ceremony, kimono show, and silk weaving demonstrations.

Students can dive into both the ancient past as well as recent history. For example, to learn more about World War II, we take excursions to Hiroshima to visit the Peace Memorial Museum and the A-Bomb Dome.

No matter your preferred area of study, Japan is a great choice for studying abroad, and we can work with you to customize your itinerary! Contact us to begin customizing your Japan program today!
