Japan is, arguably, the most world’s most fascinating country. It’s distinctive, contradictory, culture, a mix of pop culture and ancient traditions. From Hello Kitty and geishas to sumo wrestling and sushi-trains, teaching Japanese culture is a journey in itself.
It’s a mind-boggling culture that’s almost impossible to comprehend, until seeing it. For teachers, a student trip to Japan can help your class develop their understanding, cultural knowledge and language skills.
Travel is powerful, in that it’s a wholesome learning experience. You’ll go there to improve your Japanese but come home with a deeper understanding of the culture. Whether it’s language lessons at partner schools or practical assignments, roaming historical sites or one of the world’s largest cities, Tokyo, the lessons are waiting at every turn.
Kyoto has mystical temples, Kinkakuji and Kiyomizu dera, and Nijo Castle. Over in Hiroshima, students will see first-hand, the event that shaped Japan’s history, forever. The Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park gives today’s youth a glimpse of the effect of World War II.
Onto Tokyo, a whole new world is waiting to be discovered.
Shrines, temples, famous shopping & business districts, sword museums, cooking classes, Rainbow Bridge, and karaoke – invented in Japan!
