What better way to learn the Japanese language than to eat, sleep, and breathe it in the amazing city of Tokyo? This modern city is filled with wonderful contrasts—its dignified temples and shrines stand quietly in the shadows of massive skyscrapers. Tokyo's modernity and fast pace are balanced by the serene charm of its many parks and the quiet courtesy of its people. Both energetic and graceful, Tokyo is a gateway to the fascinating culture of Japan.
Tokyo will be your classroom. Explore Chiba Prefecture and the dynamic city of Tokyo. Wander through the downtown streets to explore the local shops, try delicious Japanese fare, and discover new ways to soak in this complex and intriguing culture—all while practicing your Japanese skills, of course.

Explore centuries-old temples, gardens, and castles that are only minutes from ultra-modern skyscrapers, electronics stores, and haute couture fashion centers. Dine on sushi and tempura, attend a sumo match or a baseball game, and learn tea ceremony, karate, or breakdancing. Take classes in the town of Makuhari, on the tip of Tokyo Bay, and just 45 minutes from the heart of the city. All of this and so much more awaits you in Tokyo!
