Location & Culture

Click to Open

A city like no other, Tokyo is all about what’s new. With a population of more than 13 million people, it’s crowded, but it’s also super clean and safe. See how limited space has been maximized in ingenious ways and enjoy an astounding variety of shopping options and entertainment. In Tokyo, every customer gets the royal treatment from helpful clerks, trains run on time, and pockets of nature as well as throwbacks to times gone by are easy to find.

The Culture

EXCURSIONS & ACTIVITIES

  • Take a weekend trip to Hiroshima, where peace memorials, Peace Institute discussions, and bomb survivor stories bring history to life.
  • Visit the island of Miyajima, where a Shinto torii gate seems to float on water.
  • Find your Zen in an authentic garden of the same name.
  • Get involved in campus life by joining a club at Sophia University. 
  • Academic-year students take an additional weekend to discover other regions like Sendai, Kansai or Inuyama , practicing the language while they explore.
  • Choose from a range of group cultural activities – there’s always more to see and do.

PROJECTS

  • Volunteering: Just ask our team for suggestions, or perhaps you can find your own gig: helping at a local school; collecting food for homeless people, or offering support to disabled youth.  
  • Cultural Reimbursement: Take advantage! We’ll reimburse you for the cost of attending Japanese movies, traditional music concerts, or theater performances, as well as visits to museums and sites.
  • Internships: We are happy to assist you with ideas for non-credit opportunities.

Daily Life

Click to Open
  • HOUSING

    Homestays: Living with a Japanese family is the best way to immerse yourself in the language and culture. Students who stay for the year will most likely live with a different family each semester.

    Dorms: Dorms provide housing for students from Sophia University and other universities, as well as young professionals. These private facilities are managed by bilingual staff who communicate with students and plan activities. Dorms are co-ed, but men and women have separate floors and may not enter floors of the opposite sex. Each student has a single room with Internet access, and shared bathrooms, lounge areas, and laundry. Students prepare meals in the large dorm kitchen. Expect a 60- to 90-minute commute from Sophia University.

    Academic-year housing: Students can choose a dorm or homestay for either/both semesters. Students are responsible for arranging and paying for lodging between semesters.

  • MEALS

    Homestays: Breakfast and dinner are provided by your host family daily. Plan to get your own lunch.

    Dorms: Students are responsible for providing and paying for all meals and can prepare meals in the large dorm kitchen.
