This four week total immersion program is hosted by the Mishima campus of Nihon
University. Students have the opportunity to live and attend classes under the shadow
of Mt. Fuji, the symbol of Japan. Prior to departure, students will receive
an intensive four day orientation.
During the Edo period, Mishima was an important post-town on the Tokaido Highroad,
which connected Kyoto to Tokyo. Hiroshige Ando, a famous woodblock print artist,
depicted Mishima as one of the 53 stages of the Tokaido Highroad. In addition to
its rich cultural history, Mishima is only one hour from Tokyo by bullet train.
