About

 Students will typically be placed in the first or second year at a Japanese high school. Most schools are quite large, averaging 500 to 1,000 students. While the school curriculum is compulsory, you will probably enjoy learning new things in subjects like Japanese classics or contemporary Japanese language. You may also attend elective classes that include subjects such as art and calligraphy. You may choose to go to club activities after school such as karate or judo. Japanese schools are generally conservative and therefore the dress code in Japan may be stricter than you are used to. In Japanese schools, students do not have unnaturally dyed hair, or aggressive hair styles. Jewelry is not allowed including piercings, earrings, necklaces or rings. Students cannot wear makeup nor perfume or have visible tattoos. Female students cannot wear skirts above the knees or high heels. Male students should not have a beard or long hair.
