Program Description:

Tokyo, Japan: Summer 2018

“My experience in Tokyo was one that I truly could not have gotten anywhere else and loved every minute of it. The opportunity to travel Japan and live in a culture so unlike our own is an opportunity that should not be passed up.”
-Alex Bridgeman

The Experience: 

Located in the southeastern side of the main island Honshu, Tokyo is the capital metropolis of Japan and also includes the Izu Islands and Ogasawara Islands. Formerly known as Edo, Tokyo is actually a metropolitan prefecture rather than a city which is a unique characteristic. 51 of the Fortune Global 500 companies are hosted in the metropolis and the cuisine is internationally acclaimed having 191 Michelin stars between 150 restaurants.

All courses are linked with the different sights and cultural aspects of Tokyo. Among the special tours planned are visits to the Meiji Shrine and the Edo-Tokyo Museum. It is also possible for students to experience a range of traditional Japanese arts including Noh, Kabuki, the tea ceremony, flower arrangement, and a variety of Japanese arts on display at Tokyo museums.
