This summer intensive is done on EVEN years

Students will spend 10-14 days in Kyoto, Japan. They are fully immersed in the culture and are guided by a few of the teachers from our sister school, Sagano High School.

In 2018, we took Dr. Iannitti and her husband, Mrs. Ramsey, Ms. Jalm, and 6 students (4 also went with us to Yellowstone!)

Our itinerary included...

  • Transportation: bus, train, shinkansen (bullet trail), taxi
  • Stays at a youth hostel and temple
  • Arashiyama, hiking in the woods, Himeji Castle, Fushimi Inari, Kinkakuji Temple, Ritsumeikan University, Nara, and others with homestay families
  • Lots of shopping!
