These tours allow you to experience a variety of Japanese culture. We can arrange tour experiences such as kimonos, Zen meditation, tea ceremonies, pottery, calligraphy, Japanese cooking, art, and others, according to your needs. This is a program where tour members will not only see, but actually participate and experience.
This is a program for learning about Japanese art. Since the scope of art is very broad, we will decide on the program content according to your needs. We will observe works of art at museums; public art; and offer guidance on viewing artworks by perspective, such as comparison to background. We can also arrange for you to meet with artists, and take part in art workshops.
Traditional Craft Tour
We will visit a local traditional craft workshop, and provide information about the type of craft through viewing the works. We can also arrange for you to interact with artisans, and take part in craft-making workshops.

Homestay in Japan
We can arrange a homestay for you in Japan. A homestay in a Japanese home, and with a Japanese family, is the best way to learn about the country’s lifestyle and culture, and to broaden your international horizons through deep, meaningful interaction with Japanese people. Activities such as cooking Japanese food with your host family, wearing a kimono, and participating in local festivals will provide you with an in-depth experience of Japan, as well as a chance to get to know the real Japan. You have the option of a homestay with or without meals. It is also possible to participate in other study tours, simultaneous to your homestay. The homestay program can be one of the most gratifying and unforgettable life experiences, as you can continue to maintain interaction and make Japanese friends, even after the study tour has concluded.
Agricultural Experiences and Farm Stays
This program offers farming experiences, such as harvesting crops. You can learn about Japanese agriculture through interaction with farmers. It is also possible to stay overnight at a farmhouse. In addition to agriculture, there are programs geared toward fishing experiences.
