Japan, Tokyo - culture, nature and youth

 

In this culture subject, an encounter with the "Empire of the Sun" awaits you - a fascinating country that lives in the contrast between high technology and tradition-bound customs and virtues.

 

The Lessons

We need to be as well-equipped as possible to engage with Japanese youth culture and the firm grip of tradition in Japan, where there is a great mix of tradition and rapid technological development.  

The teaching itself will have more focus on the creative skills, working on different topics, within Japan. We will be working with Manga, where drawing will be taught. We will be animating i.e. Stopmotion and 2D animation. There will also be work on Japanese food culture, where we will try to make some traditional dishes from Japan.  We also get into Cosplay - here we work with crafts, where students get the opportunity to make, for example, star throwers or similar weapons. There is also the opportunity to work on a costume, for those who wish. Finally we work on understanding Japanese culture, language, customs and history are our focus topics. For this, students will make a video to share on Youtube, with students from Japan doing the same, so they get to know each other.

The trip

During the trip we will be travelling through the old japanese capital and the new one. 

That is, through the world's largest capital, around temples and imperial palaces, past a mythical volcano, in hot springs, at a noodle workshop, at a karaoke experience and directly at eye level with a Japanese school class, where we will exchange future dreams, school culture, opportunities and trends for Japanese peers... (The school cannot be done in 2022 due to Corona) 

But, what exactly we are going to experience, we will find out together. 

Are you crazy about Japan and it's fascinating culture - or would you like to be? Then come with us and experience a unique trip with enough inspiration to last a lifetime!

 

After the trip

 When we come back from the trip, we work on a presentation where the students bring their own highlights from the lesson and the trip itself (For this, it is good to have taken pictures in the classroom and on the trip).
