A journey to the land of the Samurai

"They say Japan was made by a sword. They say the old gods dipped a coral blade into the ocean, and when they pulled it out, four perfect drops fell back into the sea, and those drops became the islands of Japan." - The Last Samurai

Culture & technology

The Study Trip Committee presents the destination of the trip for 2023: Kyoto, Japan. A land with a culture and history so vastly different from ours... That alone is reason enough to join us. We will be exploring the ancient Japanese culture in the traditional city of Kyoto (the formal capital of Japan), while looking for the most recent and modern developments in the city of Osaka. The best of both worlds: a beautiful people with an intriguing history and a modern scientific culture with researchers looking for the best new developments.
