Study abroad programs in Japan

Tokyo is an enormous city consisting of many unique neighborhoods, which will become second nature to you when you study abroad in Japan. Visit the Imperial Palace in Hibiya, or browse high-end designer stores in Ginza. Are you learning Japanese to use in business? Then head to Nihombashi and visit the Tokyo Stock Exchange. You'll be able to find just about any electronic gadget imaginable in Akihabara, or experience the city's nightlife in Shinjuku. Each part of Tokyo is vibrant in its own way, making it easy to find local haunts that suit your tastes when you study in Japan.

How to study abroad in Japan

When you study abroad in Japan, you'll be able to choose between living with a local host family or staying in a student residence. You'll enjoy authentic, home-cooked meals during a homestay, with the added bonus of having the opportunity to practice the language skills you've learned while you study abroad in Japan. Your host family can give you tips on the neighborhood and activities, giving you an insider's view of Japan. A student residence is also a good choice, as you'll have a bit more independence and live with other students from around the world. Either way, you'll be sure to live in an stimulating environment as you study abroad in Japan and begin to make it home.
