The Autumn in Japan study trip offers all the delights of Tokyo at the perfect time of year. As the air starts to chill and takes a crisp edge, you can wrap up and try out activities that are at the heart of Japan. Start by sticking on your yukata, relax at a tea ceremony and learn the art of calligraphy, you’ll feel like you’re meant to be here by the end of it. We’ve paired this with a homestay as the basic accommodation, so you can get that complete feeling of Japanese life. It’s important to mix it up a bit as well so take a trip to Tokyo Disneyland and practice your Japanese on your favourite characters.
