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.

From the moment you start inquiring by mail to the last goobye in person the staff is super helpful, they will make their best to ensure you have a great time.

With the school, the activities, the new people you are meeting and all the new things to discover in Japan there is never a dull moment.

The schedule for classes and activities give you enogh free time to look around for all the other plans you might have made for your trip, but the constant transportation to school and activities and the kitchen in the dorm let you stay away from the just another tourist tag, you can become as local as you like.

My only regret is not realizing how much stuff and souvenirs i was gonna plan on taking home, travel light, you will come back super full

What would you improve about this program?
the housing, the room was private, spacious, and comfortable, is not the easiest to meet your housemates when there were almost no shared areas, but is a great excuse to head out

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.

The summer course was super fun and I couldn't imagine a better way I could have ended my summer. The activities are a great introduction to all the cool things you can experience in Japan and I especially love that this course is accessible to anyone regardless of their language proficiency. All the staff are super kind and helpful and very fun! This course is also a great way to meet new people from many different backgrounds, so not only are you learning about Japan but also many other different countries and cultures. I enjoyed this course very much and I guarantee my experience in Japan would have been much different and definitely not as fun if I had not chosen to go with the GoGoNihon summer course! 😊😊😊

Amazing trip!

You won’t regret going to Japan, the only thing you might regret is not getting a bigger bag to pack all the souvenirs.

The GoGoNihon staff are super helpful and are very kind. Always willing to help when they can and go out of their way to help.

There’s also so many things to do in Japan, you cannot say “I’m bored” while you’re there.

Just do it and Go! (Go Nihon)

What would you improve about this program?
Have a handful (3-5) SIM cards ready for when the first ones don’t work. It happened to 2-3 people and their sim cards didn’t work with the phones at first.

The Facebook group thing worked in letting people know eachother before the trip. And a way to contact anyone who may be late for meet up.

Staff Interviews

These are in-depth Q&A sessions with program leaders.

Lindsay was born in England and first came to Japan in the Summer of 2014 at the age of 24. After having spent a fun filled month, attending the Summer Course, she was determined to go back and study long term. Having now finished her studies, she is now working to help students who have the same hopes and goals of going to Japan.

What is your favorite travel memory?

My favorite memory was the day I realized I wanted to come back to Japan long term. It was the third day of my holiday and I remember going to a lantern festival on Odaiba Beach, which they hold each year on Sea Day (A national holiday).

As I looked out over the bay, there was so much to take in. When the sun set, the city lit up creating a glittering skyline, with Rainbow Bridge to my right and the Yakatabune (Japanese party boats), decorated with red lanterns that reflected in the water, I don't know why, but at this moment I just knew I had to come back.

How have you changed/grown since working for your current company?

Having met so many people from different backgrounds and nationalities, I think that my communication skills have improved a lot, as well as my understanding of people and my patience. I hold a high amount of respect for my colleagues and look forward to continue growing as an individual alongside them.

What is the best story you've heard from a return student?

I’ve had the pleasure of working with many Study Trip students and I’m always happy to hear them say they want to come back to Japan. Last Summer I was very fortunate to have met a fantastic group of people, that I now consider friends. One of the Italian girls I met was so lovely, she really enjoyed herself and had the nicest things to say about the Study Trip and all the staff.

It’s the best feeling to know that you’ve contributed to someone’s happiness and experiences.

When we shared the video of their trip on Facebook, she shared it and wrote the nicest comment. It was originally in Italian, but she basically said that she will never forget the incredible experiences she had thanks to the Summer Course. She then goes on to thank everyone and hopes to see everyone again soon. I then found out that she had applied to come back long term. So I’m now looking forward to seeing her in October and hearing how how everything goes with her studies and life here.

If you could go on any program that your company offers, which one would you choose and why?

As I mentioned previously, I first came to Japan on the Summer Course, which I loved and will never forget. But if I could pick a course now, I would choose the Traditional Japan Study Trip. Not only do you get to see Tokyo for all it’s splendor, you also get to visit the old capital of Japan, Kyoto. It’s the perfect way to see the rich traditional image of Japan, as well as the modern brightly lit metropolis.

I also enjoy activities that require a hands on approach, so this course is perfect for people that enjoy being creative. Getting to make and then eat my own Sushi and Wagashi (traditional Japanese sweets) sounds like a great way to learn about Japanese culture and the language. As the course is from the beginning of July, it’s just before it starts to get really hot and humid.

What makes your company unique? When were you especially proud of your team?

The company is unique in that we have a lot of people from many different nationalities, who speak numerous languages. This means that we can have good relationships built on trust, which puts our students minds at ease before and during their time in Japan.

I think the best part of the job and when I feel most proud of my team is when we work together to improve the experience for the students and as a result at the end of the trip when the students are happy and enjoyed themselves.

What do you believe to be the biggest factor in being a successful company?

The biggest factor of any successful company is that everyone works together towards the same goals. I think that one of the best things about our company is the diversity and that we are all able to be ourselves at work. It means that we have the perfect environment to work together in harmony. We work together and adapt fast to changes, do what we say we are going to do and we do it selflessly.
