Japan is an ideal place to explore a new culture in high school. With its intricate mix of tradition and modernity, Japan appeals to history buffs and futurists alike. By living with a host family and attending a local high school, you’ll be fully immersed in Japanese language and culture, developing fluency.
Modesty, politeness, and social harmony are important parts of Japanese culture. But the Japanese are not quite the perfectionists they’re made out to be. For example, wabi-sabi, a subtle element of Japanese culture and aesthetics, roughly translates to an acceptance of life’s imperfections and impermanence.
Japan also has unique pop culture. Discover kawaii and other Japanese fashion trends. Listen to J-Pop (Japanese Pop music). And, of course, explore the birthplace of manga and anime.
Challenge yourself in a country where competitive academics and dedication to technological advancement are world famous. Remember that Japan’s culture is complex and full of contrasts. So, you’re bound to have an exciting, eye-opening, and educational adventure.
