About Program

Hello / こんにちは

Japan has much more to offer than skyscrapers, bright lights, and endless shopping. Take your time to immerse yourself for 3 weeks in the traditional ways that make Japan truly unique. On our Traditional Japan Study Trip you will study Japanese at Akamonkai, one of the biggest language schools in Tokyo. Allowing you to test your language skills on the road and in your dormitory where you will meet like-minded travelers! You will visit Buddhist temples with rich history, learn traditional crafts like Furoshiki, make and eat traditional foods like Sushi and Wagashi. But of course, a summer in Tokyo is not complete without singing your heart out in Karaoke and attending a spectacular Matsuri with your new found friends.

Awesome Experience

When I went on this trip, the weeks just flew by. We were always doing something exciting or getting to see unique and amazing parts of Japan. My main reason for going on this study trip was to, well, study. I wanted to check out the school and see if I liked it or not. I guess I liked it, since I'm currently writing this review from Japan while going to the same language school from the trip!

Going on this trip with a group of people from all around the world was an amazing experience. The trip staff take care of a lot of the heavy lifting, so you don't have as much to worry about and you can enjoy the trip. Not to mention our tour guide was incredibly funny and helpful, he really took the trip over the top and made it much more than just a tour. This is absolutely a unique experience that will stick with you and I can't recommend it enough.

Three weeks and a thousand stories

I'll start by saying: this was an absolutely incredible trip. I got so many cool memories and stories from walking around the streets in Tokyo and Kyoto that I even now almost a year after often find myself daydreaming about it.

The trip might seem a bit on the pricey side if you just consider the price of everything compared to doing it yourself alone, but the thing is: it's not the same. A big part of why my trip was so amazing was because I was experiencing it with like-minded people. And those memories and people will remain with me for a long time.
