Throughout the session, we invite our participants to join several cultural events.
Information on the event schedule will be provided in the welcome packet, which is shared with the students before beginning of the session.
Below are some of the events we have done in the previous sessions:
Virtual campus tour
A Sophia University virtual campus tour was held when the program was offered online.
In this tour, session students are joined by a group of Sophia students to talk about their campus life. Our staff will act as an avatar and move around on behalf of the participants while broadcasting from campus.
Students can enjoy a tour of the campus virtually, without being physically present on campus.

Rakugo is a traditional Japanese comic storytelling. A Rakugo storyteller (Rakugoka in Japanese), Mr. Shinoharu TATEKAWA gave this special live performance for the program participants exclusively!
The show is a must-see event and has been enjoyed by previous participating students and staffs alike.
Participants of the short-term programs took a trip to the National theater to watch the Kabuki play.
