Nanzan University is hosting a 3-week study tour during the summer that will unleash your curiosity of Japanese culture and society through the lens of anime. This program is based in the city of Nagoya, Japan's forth-most populous city, with over 2.3 million residents. This historic city is located right on Ise Bay and is well known for its blend of traditional and modern architecture. The Kiyosu and Nagoya castles are perhaps two of the most impressive Edo period castles in all of Japan. During this program, you will meet students from all around the world interested in learning about Japan, and will share time with them in both the classroom and on a number of field trips to anime-related places in central Japan. Outside of the classroom, you will have plenty of free time to explore and experience all that Japan has to offer.
