Hiroshima faces the tranquil Seto Inland Sea in an environment richly endowed with natural beauty. The northern part of the city is mountainous, offering recreation opportunities in water sports in the summer and snow sports in the winter. Hiroshima City is an energetic and thriving metropolis with excellent shopping, movie theatres, restaurants, and cultural activities. The city was devastated by the atomic bomb in 1945, but its present prosperity is living proof of the energy and willpower of the Japanese. Except for the Atomic Bomb Dome, there is little left to remind you of the devastation. Hiroshima Prefecture is dominated by the Chugoku Mountain Range, with small towns and farming villages, which offers many kinds of traditional entertainment such as Kagura, sacred Shinto music and dance.
This 4-week program is designed for Japanese language students, from Hirsohima Shudo University’s partner universities, who wish to enhance their Japanese language skills and to learn about Japanese culture through classroom instructions, excursions, field trips, communication with Hirshoma Shudo University students, and a weekend homestay.
