Program Description:
ISEP Direct Tokyo
  • With a central location in the magical city of Tokyo, Toyo offers an experience in the heart of one of the most modern megacities in the world. Just off campus, temples and shrines that are hundreds of years old offer opportunities for quiet reflection and a change of pace. 
  • Deepen your understanding of Japanese language and culture while also examining global business, international relations, or urban and environmental studies. 
  • All interested international exchange students are connected with Language Exchange Partners (LEPs), Toyo student volunteers who can help with Japanese language practice and assimilation into Japanese culture. 
  • How would you fare against a real-life sumo wrestler? As an international student at Toyo, find out by participating in a training session with Toyo’s sumo team and then sitting down to dinner with them afterward. If you would rather just watch sumo, every winter students attend the annual Grand Sumo Tournament held at the world-famous Ryougoku Kokugikan Sumo Hall. 

Tokyo is a perfect fit for all personalities—those looking for the fast-paced modern environment can enjoy city life in places like Akihabara and Ikebukuro, and more leisurely students can enjoy walking through parks in places like pedestrian-friendly Tomigaya.  

What We Love About Toyo
We love all the extra activities that you can participate in while at Toyo. For example, there is a rice planting event, an annual field day where students do outdoor activities, like tug-o-war, and a Kimono Wearing Party, just to name a few. You also have access to The English Community Zone (ECZ), a space where any student can come and participate in various programs and informal conversations in English.
