Japan Bound is about more than just travel - Our programs foster independent thinking, self reflection, and change-making. Through workshops, guest speakers, and various activities over the course of the trip, participants will challenge themselves and break out of their comfort zone while on the trip of a lifetime!
Students will travel across the country visiting a unique, thought provoking variety of sites in Tokyo, Kyoto, Hiroshima and Kagoshima. Each location offers a specially designed itinerary guided by our staff and locals to insure an authentic experience. In today's world, cross-cultural communication and a deep understanding of one's self are necessary not just to be successful, but to also enhance your relationships with those around you. We'll start this journey in modern Tokyo, head down to vintage Kyoto, reflect on and our history with Japan in Hiroshima, and finish with a week in beautiful Kagoshima. Unlike most trips, we don't want to parade you around tourist attraction after tourist attraction, we want to provide a true gateway to meaningful connection with people just like you, but half-way across the world! Come home from this trip with a better understanding of a new culture, new friends, and a newly discovered passion for learning about those around you!
