Japan

You are here

Why should you study abroad in Japan? Picture this: one minute you’re studying Japanese in class and the next you’re learning new vocabulary at a local restaurant. You’re making Japanese and international friends as you explore your host city. And not to mention the field trips that take you beyond your host city to explore the cultures and traditions of Japan!

With us, studying abroad in Japan means not only practicing Japanese language and culture in the classroom, but also experiencing it firsthand.

When it comes to study abroad, Japan has something for everyone. Whether you choose to study in Nagoya or Tokyo, our Japan study abroad programs help you make the most of your host city and academic interests.

  • Imperial Palace

    The Imperial Palace is the home of the Japanese Emperor. A massive wall encompasses the Palace and acts as a defense for the Emperor. Although the palace is closed to the public all but two days a year, visitors can experience the East Garden and Sannomaru Sozokan Museum year-round.

  • Shinjuku

    Shinjuku is perhaps the most impressive of the 23 wards in Tokyo. The Metropolitan Government Building, the Shinjuku Station, and many restaurants, stores, hotels, and international businesses are located in Shinjuku.  Be sure to visit Nishi-shinjuku, the "skyscraper district" of Tokyo.

  • Tokyo Tower

    The Tokyo Tower is modeled after Paris's Eiffel Tower. Underneath the tower is FootTown, a four-story building that offers visitors many stores, restaurants, and museums. The Tokyo Tower Wax Museum is a favorite attraction, with wax models of famous people.
