Tokyo Summer

Program Overview

Tokyo Summer

As one of the world's largest metropolitan areas, Tokyo and its environs will challenge you to look at the world differently. Mastering public transportation, trying exotic foods, encountering the maximum urban environment that surrounds carefully nurtured gardens and parks, experiencing a lifestyle that combines fast-paced modernity with age-old traditions—all of these will expand your view of the world and offer insights into your own reality.

This program is excellent for serious students at all levels who seek to study Japanese language in an intensive course and delve into an exciting exploration of Japanese culture.

Visit www.IESabroad.org for complete program details.

Why Tokyo?

Explore centuries-old temples, gardens, and castles that are only minutes from ultra-modern skyscrapers, electronics stores, and haute couture fashion centers. Dine on sushi and tempura, attend a sumo match or a baseball game, and learn tea ceremony, karate, or breakdancing. Take classes in the town of Makuhari, on the tip of Tokyo Bay, and just 45 minutes from the heart of the city. All of this and so much more awaits you in Tokyo!
