About International Study Abroad Programs in Japan

If you’re planning to study abroad, either for a semester or academic year, there are countless reasons to support your decision.  For example, living and studying in a foreign country allows you to experience a different perspective, not just academically but culturally as well.  It opens your eyes to a world other than your own, giving you a global outlook of the world, rather than a singular or regional viewpoint.  It also enables you to earn valuable credits towards your degree, while concurrently learning a new culture, making new friends and visiting wonderful sights you’ve yet to see. Sadly, some will never get this opportunity, but if the university you attend sponsors one or more of these programs, which most major colleges and universities do nowadays, you may be able to make this dream a reality. 
 
Before you apply, however, you’ll need to make a very important decision—where to study—and based solely on student feedback, one place you should definitely consider is Japan.  While international study abroad programs are offered in hundreds of countries throughout the world, studying in Japan is a truly unique and one-of-a-kind experience, with thousands of sights and attractions to visit when you’re taking a break from your studies.
 
One of the more popular Japanese study abroad destinations is Tokyo, the country’s capital and also its most populous city.  Students who enjoy the excitement of big city life will feel right at home in Tokyo, home to some of the world’s largest corporations, exciting sights and world-class dining and shopping.  Thrill seekers will truly enjoy Tokyo Disney, an amusement park based on the Disneyland theme parks in the United States.  This is a great place to relax and unwind for the day, a place featuring thrilling rides, Disney-themed characters and attractions, international cuisine and plenty of chances to shop.
 
If you want to get a bird’s eye view of Tokyo, even at night, take the short walk over to the Tokyo Tower.  Its design is based on the Eiffel Tower in Paris, and since 1958 has been the tallest self-supporting iron tower in the world.  Tokyo Tower features two observation floors at various heights where you can enjoy a 360-degree view of the entire city below.  Other features include an aquarium, wax museum, shopping arcade, restaurants and cafes.
 
Another exciting city where you’ll find many study abroad programs is Kyoto, Japan’s ancient capital and 7th largest city.  Kyoto is one of Japan’s most beautiful and treasured cities, featuring attractions such as the “Kiyomizudera Temple.”  This is one of the most renowned temples in all of Japan, boasting a large terrace with a wonderful view of the city.  You may know that Japan is famous for its Cherry Blossom trees, and Kyoto’s “Maruyama Koen,” a park with over 800 cherry trees is a great place to see them in bloom, typically between mid March and the end of April.  Finally, for the history buff there’s the Kyoto Imperial Palace.  Rich in tradition, Kyoto Imperial Palace preserves the look and ambiance of Japan’s ancient imperial dynasties.  The current palace was rebuilt in 1855 and comprises several different structures, each reflecting the various architectural styles of the time.
 
Studying in Japan is the perfect opportunity for you to spread your wings and experience a world where the ancient blends effortlessly with the modern.  From the classroom experience to the cultural enrichment to all the exciting fun you’ll have exploring the cities’ attractions, there simply is no better destination than Japan for your study abroad opportunity.
