Fully Escorted and Inclusive Cultural & Language Tour for High School Students.
This tour is designed as a comprehensive introduction to Japan. Locations and experiences have been selected and information will be offered to encourage understanding and develop knowledge of language, cuisine, history, traditional and modern culture and practice, heritage and futuristic architecture and technology, geography, and values.
Children participating in educational travel are inspired by exposure to new people, ideas, and experiences that bring positive effects across all learning areas. Language, cuisine, traditional and modern culture and practice, visual arts, music, heritage and futuristic architecture and technology, geography, can be observed and experienced. The journey transpires the walls of classrooms to provide meaningful experiences, insight and opportunities for discussion about society, world history, politics, economy, cultural heritage and shared values. Students mature intellectually and personally. Developing awareness of cultural and racial diversity helps prepare young people for a future in an increasingly global community.
Japan has all of this to offer. Japan is also known for hospitality, efficient and reliable transport, good quality food, a low crime rate, and is generally considered one of the safest places in the world to travel.
