Daily Life

The biggest appeal of studying abroad in Japan is the opportunity to learn about cutting-edge technology and science. Academic fees in Japan are much lower than in the United States or the United Kingdom.
Japan is known for its rich natural environment and four very distinct seasons of spring, summer, fall and winter. Surrounded by the sea, Japan has fostered a unique culture since ancient times.
Japan is an economically rich country with one of the lowest crime rates in the world. International students can relax and focus on their studies.
