St Ursula's students studying Japanese have the opportunity every two years to visit Japan and our sister school, Utsunomiya Kaisei Girls’ High School. The tour duration is about two weeks and students stay with host families.
Not only does the tour allow the students to experience Japanese school life but it also allows students to experience many cultural aspects of Japan by exploring a well-designed mix of modern and historical, urban and rural destinations. The destinations include Utsunomiya, Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka, Himeji, Hiroshima and Miyajima.
The students benefit from improvements in Japanese language skills as well as a greater understanding of Japanese culture through the Japan tour.
