Ancient traditions and ultra-modern life in perfect harmony …

Japan is a country of exciting contrasts. Tokyo, the country’s economic, technical, and political hub, is truly one of the world’s most vibrant and fascinating capitals - and a fashionista’s and gastronome’s delight! Experience a Japanese film or traditional theater performance. Ride the bullet train to Hiroshima to visit the Peace Memorial Park and Museum. Get inspired at the Zen gardens in Kyoto. Then there's Kyoto, Japan's "cultural capital," where ancient palaces, traditional teahouses, and peaceful Zen gardens meet to form an idyllic landscape.

Whether you choose a summer, semester, or year-long program, CIEE study abroad in Japan offers homestays, cultural activities, and superior cross-cultural and language training, for a challenging, enriching, and fully immersive experience.
