With 5 weeks in Japan and 4 weeks of lessons, you’ll be able to work on your conversation abilities at school and then focus on your JLPT studies in the afternoons and weekends. We’ll take care of the paperwork, so you can focus on your studies and of course, to make sure you’ve got a good study/life balance, join some activities to absorb some Japanese culture, as well as the language. Whether it’s getting creative with some indigo tie-dying or visiting a Japanese Sake Brewery to learn how it’s made, studying for your JLPT will be a lot more exciting in Japan!

Choose your plan
- Visit the Ghibli Museum Are you familiar with Studio Ghibli? The animation studio behind favorites such as Totoro, the Cat Bus, etc. Even if you're not, you can still enjoy this amazing museum dedicated to showcasing the art and techniques of animation. The architecture of the buildings alone will bring out your inner child. On top of that you can enjoy themed sweets in their cafe, a theatre showing short films exclusive to the museum, and a nice souvenir shop for you hardcore fans who want to get memorabilia from your favourite films.
- Sumo Restaurant Enjoy an evening in Ryogoku - The home town of sumo wrestling. What could be better than feasting on a perfectly sumo-sized meal of Chanko Nabe (sumo stew or hot pot) with some complimentary Japanese dishes on a cold autumn day. In the middle of the restaurant is a sumo ring used by retired sumo wrestlers, musicians and performers who will entertain you during your meal.
- Experience Shibori We're sure you've heard of tie-dyeing, This technique dates back to the 8th century. In Japan, the population has been using different ways of binding, stitching, folding and twisting cloth and traditionally dying the materials with blue indigo colour to create some of the most beautiful patterns. This is a great chance to create your own design and make something that you can take back home with you, to give as a gift or to keep as a memory of your time in Japan.
- Sample some sake Sample the delights of a local sake brewery in a guided tour followed by some sample tasting. Spot the difference and see if you could become a connoisseur.
- Cruise to Odaiba and visit teamLab Meet us in the famous district of Asakusa for a cruise down the Sumida River, all the way to Odaiba the man made island for entertainment. There we'll head on over to Team Lab to take in their digital art display.
- Relax at a Tea Ceremony Join us for an immersion into Japanese culture by learning the subtle and peaceful art of serving and drinking Japanese green tea (matcha). The ceremony is held in a traditional setting originating from the 1600s. The buildings have been tastefully restored and are now used for activities such as art and crafts, culinary and culture. It's even used as a film set occasionally. The taste of matcha tea might not be to everyone's taste but don't worry, the slightly bitter taste is paired perfectly with a traditional Japanese sweet (wagashi).
- Dine out at an Izakaya No trip to Japan is complete without a trip to a traditional Izakaya for an after-school drink. Bond with your fellow travellers over a drink and some delicious food.
