Japanese universities and campuses
In Asia, Japanese universities have a great reputation. But it’s not just in Asia their universities are ranked highly, it’s across the world too. Some of the highest-ranking universities in Japan include the University of Tokyo and Kyoto University. Luckily for students, Tokyo and Kyoto are also two of the best cities to study abroad in Japan. While Tokyo has a more modern, bustling-city feel, Kyoto is a bit more historical and quieter, and is full of museums and festivals.
Japanese lifestyle and culture
If you’re looking for a destination with both incredibly cutting edge technology and traditional cultures, Japan is the perfect blend of both for you. When visiting this island nation you may find its culture and customs a little different than what you’re used to at home. So just be sure to never, ever litter, be polite and try to learn a few key phrases in Japanese to get you by. And if languages aren’t your forte, don’t worry! A lot of street signs are in Japanese, English and Romaji. And when it comes to safety in Japan, it’s known to be one of the safest places for travelers worldwide.
Exploring Japan on a student budget
Budget-friendly is now a phrase that immediately springs to mind when thinking of Japan. Hey, it’s home to Osaka, one of the most expensive cities in the world. But despite this, this country is surprisingly great at offering activities and accommodation types for those with limited funds. Save some cash during your trip by staying in a hostel and enjoying some free activities like walking tours, window shopping at the markets and visiting the parks. And try to eat local to keep the cost down too.
