Yes, good old Tokyo International University (東京国際大学). The way I first went to Japan, in August 2008. TIU, which is in Kawagoe, Saitama, has a program for foreign students called the Japanese Studies Program. It’s primarily language-oriented, with three hours of Japanese class four days a week and two Japanese studies classes, once a week each. I took modern Japanese history and Japanese literature. I only did the program for one semester, because I was an English major, but a full academic year is also an option.
I actually really recommend JSP, if you want to study in Japan. It’s near Tokyo, it’s homestay, and there are other things involved, such as a one-week trip to Kansai and a few local cultural activities. It’s a pretty great program.
Most of my TIU pictures are full of former classmates, but I did find three pictures of the campus itself. Better than nothing, right?
