The Colourful Japan study trip lets you appreciate the nature of Japan in all its glory. The crispness of the leaves underfoot and the colour on the trees up above. Just wandering through the countryside will seem enough, but why stop there? It’s certainly important to try the momijigari or ‘leaf hunting’, so take a trip with us to Nikko and enjoy all the different colours of the mountains. Famous for yuba or ‘tofu skin’, why not try one of the famous age yuba manju or buy some yuba souvenirs to take home with you. This course is also a great opportunity to study the language at one of the central language schools of Tokyo, Intercultural.
