Japan Celebration Tour 2019

The 2019 Japan Tour is a celebration of all things Japanese. You’ll experience the contrasts of ancient and ultra-modern Japan, meet people and make friends and see the best of what Japan has to offer. Highlights include:

  • A visit to our sister school, Honjo High
  • The Asimo Robot
  • Disneyland
  • The Amazing Race through ancient Kyoto
  • Himeji Castle
  • An Earthquake Simulation Centre
  • The Chichibu Night Festival
  • Exploring the anime subculture of Akihabara, with a maid as a guide

We use reputable airlines and travel by bullet train. We stay in good, clean hotels, in twin or triple share rooms. Some of the hotels will be in the traditional Japanese style. The tour includes two nights of homestay, but students can opt out of this (at extra cost). The tour will run in early December 2019. The tour is open to students who will be in Years 8 to 12 in 2019. Students are assessed in terms of their behaviour and maturity before being allowed on the tour and a recommendation from coordinators is required. Applications are available from Japanese teachers.
