Our International English Course students support overseas students from sister schools when learning about Japan’s culture, education, and traditional industries, as part of the Japan Study program.

Japan, which aims to become a favored travel destination, has abundant tourist resources and the spirit of hospitality. We hope to nurture future tourism leaders who can revitalize society with their local knowledge combined with an international perspective.

There are a variety of pathways to the tourism industry including through travel companies, hotels, amusement parks, and airline companies.

Most students are affiliated with sports clubs specially designated for practice or other sports-related clubs, where they can apply the theories and knowledge acquired in class while practicing or playing in matches. They can apply the tenets of sports psychology to situations of nervousness during matches, or apply what they learn as part of training theory or sports nutrition to their day-to-day body building. Club activities, therefore, become an arena for putting theory to practice.
