Japanese Language Courses in Japan
A unique history and geographically and politically isolated for
long stretches of time Japan has breed a singular people, distinct
culture and is an exciting place to travel to: safe, friendly
Japanese cities bewitch through atmosphere and flair rather than
with singular landmarks and unique architectural highlights (although
you'll find them, too). Tokyo,
a vast urban expanse, with nearby Yokohama and Mt. Fuji,
a symmetrical volcanic mountain with 5 lakes at the bottom is a
favorite destination. Kyoto
features a large palace and temple area as it was the imperial capital
from 8th to 19th century.
Daisetsuzan and Kirishima national parks offer beautiful
mountain scenery and hiking, walking and skiing facilities. Like
all else in this densely populated country, they can be crowded.
Seagaia Ocean Dome is the largest indoors water resort with
a retractable roof. Ironically, Seagaia is located next to some
of the most attractive beaches in Japan.
Seize the chance to immerse yourself in Japanese culture. Traditional
forms of Japanese theater with exclusively male actors include
popular Kabuki, aristocratic Noh and Bunraku,
the traditional Japanese puppet theater. Landscaping and ikebana,
the art of the flower arrangement, interact and can be admired in
parks and department stores. Zen Buddhism and tea ceremony
share some principles. And then there is Japanese cuisine,
which is by far more diverse than sushi and sashimi.
The daring can try some deadly blowfish fugu, the others
are safe sampling kaiseki (Japan's haute cuisine with matching
prices), tempura, various noodles, teppanyaki (steak
house with at table preparation) and what not. Rice is so important
to Japanese food that 'rice' and 'meal' are depicted by the same
