Frequently Asked Questions

Participants' Comments

-You have no idea what is coming? Just face it! Join Toyo Winter Program and you will know, it is worth to go!
-This was overall a fantastic program, especially for quickly being introduced to Japanese culture in both urban and rural environments. Be sure to pack ski/snowboarding wear if you own any, because Myoko Kogen, and Niigata prefecture in general, is absolutely one of the most beautiful environments I've ever seen in person!
