This program is for anyone looking for a cross-cultural experience. We created this program to provide opportunities for high school students to have a fun yet meaningful travel experience. Students will learn to problem-solve, communicate, and plan during their trip.

Portions of the itinerary is flexible, so students will have the freedom to plan parts of their day. There will also be planned activities so that students won't miss the essential parts of Japanese culture. Students will meet local students in Tokyo and Kyoto to help them navigate during their excursions and get a glimpse of student life in Japan.
