Your business studies school trip to Japan will see your students explore one of the world’s largest economies!

Japan is famous as a world leader in innovation and is home to such major manufacturing icons as Sony, Toyota and Fuji. Your school trip to Tokyo can include visits to the Honda Welcome Plaza, where you can see the famous robot ASIMO, and the Sony Showroom.

You can also visit the Suginami Animation Museum, to find out about one of Japan’s most popular exports – Animé! Or why not take a guided tour of the Tokyo Stock Exchange, where you can try your hand at trading stock in a specially-devised game! And you can open your trip up to more students by making it cross-curricular - Japan offers exciting options for geography and art too.
