Spring 2012 Participant
My collective experience in Japan has inspired me to really strive for another level of excellence in myself, and in my passions/areas of study.

Isaiah Hastings, Spring 2017 Participant
I love Tokyo. I absolutely love Tokyo. My favorite part of the program was being able to explore the city freely: everything from taking near-weekly walks from Shibuya Station to Shinjuku Station to spending an afternoon in Akihabara looking for a hard-to-find book or game to picking somewhere I'd never been and walking around the area. Tokyo is an amazing city, and with about every fifteen minutes of walking the look and feel of the streets changes drastically. There's so much to see and do--it's a wonderful place.

I would highly recommend joining a club that interests you--preferably something outside of the generic clubs for international students. On top of being good for language learning, it's a great way to find a friend group and also to really get a sense for how the locals interact.
