Students will intensively study Japanese language and enjoy learning the Japanese culture while taking part in various hands-on cultural experiences such as calligraphy, flower arrangement, sumo wrestling, Japanese archery, and more!
One unique factor is that KGU students will assist in learning the Japanese language over the period of the course.
This way students will be able to make friends with them and use their Japanese language skills in real life.
