Student Visit to Japan

1. Benefits of Global Travel

Mt.Fuji Research has shown the educational value of overseas travel. Global issues such as education, the environment, energy conservation, overpopulation, sustainability, peace and war, urbanization, natural disaster management and many other topics can be a major rationale of such trips. Through these trips lessons and concepts will be reinforced and it will help students develop empathy and acceptance of other cultures. A student visit to Japan will offer a glimpse into a country that has taken the best of the past and successfully married it with the excitement of the future.
