Explore Experiential Travel in Tokyo
Tokyo is a popular location for students to study abroad, and it’s no wonder considering the amount of culture the city is imbued with. You don’t need to be enrolled in an accredited university to experience Tokyo on a deeper, more intimate level. Although the city is becoming easier to navigate without knowning Japanese, why not take a basic Japanese class before or during your stay in Tokyo to enhance the experience? If you’re not dedicated to learning the basics of Japanese, then try learning the katakana script. For native English speakers, teaching English in Tokyo is the easiest way to work in the city. In turn, you’ll become more familiar with Japanese language, customs and cultures.
Food is a great way to come to understand the culture and history of a new destination. But instead of just eating it, why don’t you learn how to prepare it too? For the culinary-minded traveler, weekend sushi-rolling classes are available at the Tokyo Sushi Academy.
