Learn or improve your Japanese
and make lifelong friends through an unforgettable
3 weeks in Japan.
What makes Ayusa so special? We pride ourselves in not only teaching you Japanese, but providing you with a complete cultural immersion experience. Through daily excursions, such as going to a traditional Japanese hot spring, students will learn the cultural differences between America and Japan.
However, anyone can provide tourist-like activities. Unlike other programs, Ayusa offers various opportunities to interact with local Japanese people. Volunteer at Japanese elementary schools, make friends at a Japanese high school, and visit real Japanese households. Just as Ayusa students from Japan have been able to fully experience America through personal interactions, we now provide you with the chance to do the same in Japan.
Enjoy cultural exchanges with Japanese locals through volunteer activities and high school visits, all while improving your Japanese.
Gain valuable volunteering experience by teaching and planning activities for Japanese children. People that are interested in working in Japan in the future or who want a global volunteer experience can use this to their advantage.
Japanese teachers are all certified with many years of experience and classes have a student-to-teacher ratio of about 10:1.
Deepen your exchange experience by visiting a Japanese high school and a local home and making lifelong friends.
Visit a museum dedicated to your favorite anime or manga, the Buddhist temple in Asakusa, the fashion district of Harajuku, and much more. Learn or improve your Japanese and make lifelong friends through an unforgettable three weeks in Japan.
