School Trips to Japan

School trips to Japan are becoming more and more popular, as the country offers so many incredible learning experiences. Japan boasts a unique and fascinating culture, beautiful colours and ancient architecture, while also being at the forefront of modern science and technology.

Most of our groups choose to base themselves in Japan’s bustling capital, Tokyo, with excursions to other places of interest, including the imposing Mt. Fuji and the traditional teahouses of Kyoto.

For geography students, Japan’s location on the Pacific Ring of Fire provides thrilling opportunities to better understand the Earth’s geology. And, as one of the world’s largest economies, this is also an ideal destination for business studies school trips. Young artists will love the opportunity to discover Japan’s rich art history.

Whatever the motivation for your educational tour to Japan, it’s certain to leave students with lasting memories.
