Program Reviews:
Madison Marie Curry, Summer 2016 Participant
One of the most rewarding experiences was visiting a zen temple and participating in meditation. It has made a lasting impact on me back home, and I have continued using some techniques taught.

Holden Ann Zimmerman, Summer 2016 Participant
I learned a lot about myself, a lot about Japanese history and literature, but most important I learned what living in Japan is really like.

Isaac Andrew Brown, Summer 2018 Participant
Having a host family was incredibly rewarding. It gave us a chance to immerse ourselves more fully into the culture and language of Japan--something we wouldn't have been able to do as fully had we not had a host family. If nothing else, it took away any anxiety about where to start and basically forced us to go for it.
