Be part of a cohort group of 20 to 30 students from Green River College and other Colleges to live and study in Tokyo, Japan in this 10-week study abroad program. Earn 15 Green River transfer credits in Digital Photography, Japanese Language & Culture and Creative Writing.
Washington Community College faculty members will lead the group and teach the curriculum along with local Japanese faculty members. Japanese students will assist as language partners and to help with customs and cultural adjustments.
Japan offers a rich environment of arts, culture and history where centuries-old traditions exist in contrast with ultra-modern life-styles. Experience Sumo wrestling, Kabuki Theater, ancient castles and temples dating back to the days of the Samurai warriors. How about some trendy Tokyo street fashions in the Harajuku district, the latest in high technology, electronics and gadgetry, anime and a city that never sleeps. Tokyo has many faces and each neighborhood is unique and has its own distinct character. From the elegant Ginza shopping district, historical Asakusa, to the trend-setting Harajuku and Shinjuku wards, the fascination is endless.
COVID-19 vaccines and/or negative PCR tests are no longer required to enter Japan. It is recommended, but not mandatory, to have two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine to participate in this program.
Pre-Departure Orientation Date: Satuday, August 12 from 10am-3pm at Green River College
