Explore Japan is a series of two-week programs in Milton, MA where local students learn about the many facets of Japanese culture while hosting and spending time with visiting Japanese exchange students.
In the morning, workshops are held on Japanese arts and crafts, cuisine, martial arts, language and a variety of interesting cultural exercises. In the afternoon, the Japanese students and local host students embark together on field trips and participate in fun activities. Students learn in small groups (broken down by age) under the guidance of a Japanese expert and a student aide. In return for hosting a visiting Japanese student during the program, Explore Japan is FREE for the host familys child! Explore Japan is the closest thing to experiencing Japanese culture without actually traveling to Japan.
