Program Overview

Kyoto, the former capital of Japan for over a millennium, is the heart and soul of the nation’s cultural traditions.  Students will explore a variety of aspects of the city, delve into the rich food culture of Kyoto, and discover how Japan’s enormously influential pop culture took root and flourished.  Past program excursions have included visits to the International Manga Museum, a sake brewery, a Hanshin Tigers baseball game, and one of Osaka's famous fish markets.  This is a can't-miss opportunity to immerse yourself in Japan's history and culture!
