Tradition meets modernity in the thriving Japanese city of Nagoya. Countless cultural traditions began in Nagoya and have been passed down through generations—the city is referred to as Geidokoro, a center for art and culture. Don't miss the rituals and festivals that take place at temples and shrines in the Nagoya area.
Immerse yourself in Japanese culture through full-time enrollment at the Center for Japanese Studies (CJS) at Nanzan University. As a distinguished private university, Nanzan University offers excellent learning opportunities. In addition to a required intensive Japanese language class, you will choose from a range of CJS English-taught course offerings in Business, Humanities, and Social Sciences, and enjoy hands-on instruction in Japanese arts such as ikebana, shodo, hanga, and sumie. Students with very advanced language skills are encouraged to enroll in seminars taught in Japanese with local students.
