Japanese Culture and Society
～Traditional x Modern, Urban x Rural～
Toyo Summer Program 2019 will examine Japanese culture and society, comparing traditional and modern, as well as urban and rural Japan. The program will be a combination of classroom activities, field trips, and experiential learning. Most of the program will take place in Tokyo, but participants will also have an opportunity to do a homestay in the rural side of Japan, a farming village. While there, participants will experience hands-on field activities such as agriculture and so on. At the end of the program, participants will give presentations on Japan's attractive qualities from an international perspective.
