Culture Program

The aim of the culture program is to provide a diverse set of cultural contexts from which participating students can develop their understanding of the language, culture and people of Japan. The culture program includes both on-campus and off-campus activities, for example tea ceremony, Zen meditation and viewing Kabuki. All culture program activities are scheduled in the afternoon. For some events there is an additional charge.
