Experience Japanese culture and language while studying in Nagoya, Japan. This exchange program allows students to directly enroll in the Center for Japanese Studies at Nanzan University, a department administered by the university's Center for International Education. By living and learning in Japan, students experience the "real Japan" together with a cross-section of people from other countries and cultures. The result is a dynamic group of students from many different backgrounds united in their goal to discover Japan.

Nagoya-a leading Japanese center of international trade, industry and culture-has approximately 2.17 million inhabitants and houses many of Japan's important industries, including Toyota, Noritake China, Brother, and Mitsubishi. Located in the heart of Japan, Nagoya provides an ideal starting point to explore other locations in Japan, such as Tokyo, Osaka, and Kyoto.
