Cultural Immersion

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.
