Do you love Japanese anime and manga? They surely give you a peek into Japanese culture and society, but you will see the REAL Japan in the Kyoto Program. Immerse yourself in the life of a Japanese family. Let your curiosity about the culture, the society and the history of Japan sparkle through lectures, workshops, site visits, and interviews. This 25-day summer program will take you across the Pacific to the deep parts of Japan.

Highlights of the program are:

  • Staying with a host family for two weeks in Kyoto
  • Learning the Japanese language in daily encounters with Japanese people
  • Visiting culturally and historically venerated sites in Kyoto, Uji, Nara, and Hiroshima
  • Getting first-hand experiences with cultural practices, such as tea ceremony, washoku (Japanese cuisine) cooking, zen meditation, kabuki theatre, and pop culture
  • Exploring contemporary issues of ecology, commerce, aging society, and agriculture through company visits and lectures in Kyoto, Osaka, and Tokyo
  • Getting to know the work-life of a foreign teacher of English at a public school through a school visit and an interview.

After your program participation, you will see anime from a completely different perspective.
