Why study in Japan?


High Education Standard

The greatest appeal of studying in Japan is its academic environment where one can study state-of-the-art technology and acquire the knowledge that enabled Japan's phenomenal postwar economic growth. Whether it is electronics, Japanese literature, medicine or international business administration, Japanese universities and other institutes of higher education can offer course studies or research programs of virtually any field. The ratio of students who go on to universities (undergraduate level) and junior colleges (regular courses) is also very high in Japan at 56.8% (Source: Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) "Statistical Abstract 2011 edition"). This figure is indicative of the high standard of education in Japan. Many institutions of higher education, such as universities and junior colleges, are well equipped with fine research, computer, and library facilities and enable students to carry out their research in an excellent environment. 

Rich Culture

Japan is a country with rich nature, diverse topography, and beautiful turns of the seasons. Haiku verse which has blossomed by absorbing the natural essence of each season is an example of a very unique Japanese literary culture. The country's rich variety of local festivals, annual events, and folk entertainment are also most likely the result of Japan's nature and topography.

If you have been in Japan, you might say that you are a big fan of hot spring resorts, "Onsen", a unique Japanese version of the spas. Others may know about J-Pop, Japanese films, or even the nail arts. Even those who have never been in Japan may be interested in the beauty and delicacy of Japanese cuisine - some says that it must be enjoyed with both the eye and palate - as well as Japanese culture represented by in Kimono, tea ceremony and Ikebana flower arrangement, or traditional sports such as Judo, Kendo and Naginata.

Japanese Arts & Crafts

Japan boasts extraordinary skills and techniques in the production of arts and crafts. For example, Japanese lacquer is known around the world as "Japan," the very name of the country in which it originated. Characterized by its unique texture and gloss, Japanese lacquer ware gives forth an air of sublime beauty.

Japanese Animation

As you may recall, at the 81st Academy Awards the 2008 Oscar for Best Animated Short Film went to the Japanese film La Maison en Petits Cubes (Tsumiki no ie). The film had already been honored at numerous other film festivals both in Japan and abroad, including the Annecy International Animated Film Festival in France, where it received the Cristal d’Annecy.

Japanese music is recognized worldwide for its high standard of excellence across a wide range of genres including rock, jazz, classical and traditional Japanese music.
