About Program

Discover Japanese culture's many facets: from traditional to pop.

From Kyoto’s Kiyomizu Temple to the neon street signs of Tokyo's Akihabara district, embark on a 7-week journey to discover the many facets of Japanese culture!

Start on a 4-week Japanese Language & Culture program in Kyoto, where you’ll live with a host family and enjoy daily Japanese lessons and excursions. Visit the Manga Museum and iconic shrines. Get a taste for Japanese living hanging with new friends at serene teahouses and teen-filled, video-gaming arcades.

Continue on a 3-week Japanese Pop Culture program in Tokyo. Try your hand at making your own characters and storylines and team up with other Global Navigators to propose your own anime or manga project. Whether a pop art fan or aspiring creator, living in central Tokyo will be a whirlwind of excitement and provide plenty of inspiration to fuel your creativity.
