East Asian Culture and Society
In this program you will spend three weeks in Tokyo, taking an intensive course of Japanese at your own level. We will also use the weekends, as well as five extra days at the end, to visit a number of sites in Tokyo, Kyoto, Hiroshima and more.
While in Tokyo we will live in the Asakusa district, a very traditional area, with many interesting attractions (just look up in You Tube “Sanja Matsuri”!). The classes will be in Shinjuku, in the business heart of Tokyo. We will also visit the Imperial Palace gardens, Harajuku, Akashibara and much more.
In Kyoto we will visit the Golden Pavilion, the bamboo forest of Arashiyama, and the mountain Fushimi Inari shrine and its 10,000 Torii gates.
If you are looking forward to improve your Japanese in the real place, and have a full experience of Japanese culture, this is your program!
