This junior Japan Summer program is open to high school or middle students aged 14-18, it operates as a summer camp type of setting with a broad spectrum of culture, trips and activities and homestay with our warm-hearted host families. The key feature of this program (camp) is homestay to allow students to immerse in the local language and culture and interact with local people.  The trips and culture lessons are to complement the language classes to make a fun and enriching experience.

    The Youth Immersion program (Tokyo E) is an exchange-based program designed for those students who want to focus on language learning along with intense culture experiences.  Students spend full day on language and culture classes and involve lots of time to with local families to experience the local culture, the host families in this group are very committed and willing to spend much time to share and exchange the local culture with our students.  Group trips are also included during weekdays. It has beginner and intermediate Japanese level classes.  This exchange program provides supervision to all students, and all stay with their host families.

    The Culture Discovery Programs (Tokyo A, B & C) are designed for students with independence who wants a mix of language learning, culture experience, trips and free time to explore the city themselves.  This stream has option of homestay and dormitory, please note that the dormitory in Japan is different from North America, it is provided by third party companies.  This program is a mixed age group with college age students; thus students are expected to be independent.
