Program Overview

Through this program, students will experience the many sides of Japan through its history, literature, culture, and people. Traveling during Maymester, students will have the opportunity to see sights across a large part of Japan. With daily excursions to Tokyo, Hiroshima, Kyoto, and Kanazawa, students will see many different aspects of Japan. From the rural farmlands of Okayama, to the industrial sprawl of Mie, and from the street fashion of Harajuku to the kimonos of the ancient court, the juxtapositions of traditional and modern will be observed. Upon returning to Tennessee, students will complete assignments on-line. This program provides an opportunity to experience a broad spectrum of Japan that is unavailable to most. The itinerary is tentative and subject to change.
