Exchange student in Japan

Konnichiwa!

Think differently and spend a high school year as an exchange student in Japan. Learn Japanese, get an insight into an exciting culture, and experience a high school life beyond the ordinary.

By studying at a high school in Japan and sharing your spare time with a caring Japanese host family and friends, you will get a unique insight into the Japanese society which is impossible to get as a tourist. The country’s caring and friendly inhabitants are happy welcome to you and to introduce you to the everyday life – the Nippon way.

If students do not speak Japanese, they should be fluent in English.

Welcome to Japan!

Where do students live?

Staying with a Japanese host family

When going to Japan on an exchange year, you will get to know a caring Japanese host family. The family is happy to welcome you into their home and to show you the best of the characteristic and fascinating country.

By living with a Japanese family, you will get a great insight into the different customs and traditions of Japan. You will notice differences regarding table manners, greetings, and social manners among other things. Be curious, open-minded, and ask your host family questions about the lifestyle and values if you are not sure how to act. This will prepare you well for your everyday life in Japan. Did you, for instance, know that they do not shake hands and that licking the tip of your chopsticks is considered as inappropriate behavior here?

Host families all over Japan

Our host families live all over Japan, including attractive cities such as Tokyo, Kyoto, and Kobe. The families usually live in fairly small houses or apartments. The typical Japanese family consists of two parents and 1-2 children, but remember that all our host families look different. Some are married, others are single, some have children, others not. What they all have in common is that they look forward to introducing you to their culture as well as to take part in yours.

High School Programs in Japan

Classic High School is the traditional high school program that most students choose. This is the perfect choice for you who long for a genuine exchange experience. We match you with a carefully selected host family and high school in your chosen country. You can be placed in a bustling big city, charming coastal town, or on the countryside close to the nature. This is the program for you that are open-minded, and excited to try new things.
