“The reason I joined World Campus was because it offered an unique inside perspective of Japan. That’s why it appealed a lot to me and to my friends.

The experiences I've been through with World Campus and my host families can't easily be described in just a couple of sentences. But it has become something very treasurable to me! I will never forget the summer in which I joined World Campus. Here I gained a lot of different experiences. I also made a lot of new friends and have become part of several families.”

“Today World Campus Japan took us to Yuipia, where we got to share world views with local volunteers and university students. I’m glad I had an opportunity to meet so many peers from this culture.

I’m sure that many people we met today learned that cultures can have a great laugh together even without a common language - just being friendly and open to new experiences can bridge the biggest of gaps. This was certainly how I and the others felt by the time we left anyway!”

World Campus-Japan Citiies

Program Components that are in every city on tour:

  • Host Family Living:
    Participants get to experience Japanese communities in a meaningful way through a variety of different host families that have different values, perceptions and points of view. This offers an unforgettable learning opportunity when approached with an open-mind, a willingness to share experiences and culture as well as a fun attitude. In addition to spending evenings with your host family, there will be one day in each community visit fully dedicated to being with your host family.

  • Community Interaction and Personal Time:
    There will be visits arranged in each community that allows participants to better understand the uniqueness of a particular host community from a cultural, political, business view or simply for fun. There will also be time designated in the schedule for participants to balance both social times with host families and downtime to rest up a bit, catch up on laundry, or get out on their own.

  • Japanese Language Practice:
    There will be regular "Beginner Japanese" language tips and plenty of opportunities for more advanced Japanese speakers to practice and improve their skills including public speaking as well as in everyday life situations.

  • Communicating with Culture, Art, Music and Multimedia:
    World Campus Japan participants will have a chance to show off their unique talents and thank their host communities during our weekly Thank-you Event.

    Preparing for this fun and impactful event requires teamwork and is a chance to really connect with the community. Participants will be assisted by the World Campus International, Inc. team regarding ideas for what is appropriate to bring, including: instruments, traditional costumes, music, art and multimedia tools which will add uniqueness to other event components planned by our staff.
