If you have always wanted to experience Japanese culture and society first-hand, here is your chance to explore the country with an exclusive, once in a lifetime study trip.

This credit bearing summer travel course, taught by Richmond’s Dr Daliany Kersh, explores Japanese material culture and society from the Heian period to the present.   Japan manifests itself as deeply traditional and conservative yet simultaneously innovative and futuristic when it comes to the latest technological trends.

The 20 day all-inclusive programme from Monday 25 May to Monday 15 June will take in the sights and sounds of Kyoto, Nagasaki and Tokyo, from visits to the Shinto temples and Geisha ‘Ochaya’ tea houses of Kyoto to the manga museums and bright lights of Tokyo’s entertainment district.

The application deadline is Friday 6 March.  For more information contact kershd@richmond.ac.uk
