Experience Japan as an Insider
Our homestay program offers you unparalleled opportunities for cultural growth and learning as a member of a Japanese family. Our grants for research, cultural activities, and internships will provide you with funds to reach deeper for new insights into Japan's long and complex cultural history.
Discover Elective Seminars by Distinguished Faculty
You will not find any other program in Japan with special seminars taught by some of the finest professors in the AKP consortium. You can also take advantage of the rare opportunity to study with Japanese university students in our popular AKP-Doshisha Joint Seminar, a chance that no other program offers.
Language Learning Above and Beyond the Classroom
Our experienced Japanese faculty will inspire you to take language learning outside the classroom door. In addition to daily language classes, they will help you read original sources for elective class research papers and will offer special language practica on topics like Kansai dialect, different ways of apologizing, and on popular songs. Language assignments will take you down Kyoto side streets and immerse you in conversations around the homestay dinner table.
