August 08, 2016 Memories Forever
I learned how different countries perceive America and how they perceive themselves. I was able to better understand how Japanese history and their society is affected by their history and geography. I was also able to clear up some misunderstandings I had about Japan. I thought the trip was very worthwhile. - Grand View University View Entire Review

About

For the student looking for something authentically Japanese, experience Kyoto and surrounding towns. Students spend most of the program in the world famous city of Kyoto, but also venture to central Honshu to enhance their academics and cultural experience. The courses are designed to give insight into the history and significance of classical Japan as well as exposure to the aesthetic beauty of this unique country.The majority of the instruction takes place during the excursions by experienced teachers and artists. Excursions can include experiences like the Gion Festival, Kabuki theater, Higashiyama temples, Golden Pavilion, zen temples and gardens, the Path of the Philosopher, Heian Jingu Shrine, Arashiyama Bamboo Forest, and Hushimi Inari Taisha.
