Program Description:
ISEP Direct Tokyo
  • Study in Kawagoe, a charming and traditional prefecture of Tokyo and an area known for its historic Edo period atmosphere and cultural richness. 
  • Offering the best of modern and traditional Japan, the Language and Culture Program is designed for students to complete their semester with a higher level of Japanese complemented by a deeper understanding of the social life and culture of Japan.   
  • Join a campus group to connect with the local student community – from sports to a club devoted to eating Udon – there's a little something for everyone to enjoy at TIU! 
  • Enjoy the modern conveniences of Tokyo by taking a weekend trip to the countryside on a bullet train or digging into conveyor belt sushi with your new group of international friends. 

Tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Tokyo, the area around TIU is known for its boutiques, restaurants, and traditional craft stores located in 17-19th century buildings. 

Students in the past have volunteered with Tsunami cleanup groups in Northern Japan, service groups that work with physically and mentally handicapped children, English-education events for children, and on local organic farms.  

What We Love About TIU 
We love that there are approximately 1,300 international students at TIU each semester! To celebrate the truly global atmosphere of TIU and Tokyo, an International Festival is held each year for students to enjoy food, booths, and performances. In the past, students have learned about the local culture through participation in activities such as traditional and modern dance groups, community center courses in pottery, tea ceremonies, Japanese cooking classes, flower arranging classes, martial arts groups, and community sports teams.
