Student Life

International Cultural Activities

The International Center (IC) organizes various events for international students during the year. From homestays and Kabuki shows to Japanese floral arrangement demonstrations and everything in between, students are offered the opportunities to experience Japanese culture together with other international students to share each other’s culture in addition to learning about their host country’s.

Coffee Meeting

The International Center (IC) invites both international and Japanese students to our "Coffee Meeting", a fun chat meeting we hold every other month. It is an event where students enjoy games and activities together over coffee/juice with snacks. This is a great chance to make friends with AGU students from all over the world.

AGU Summer program

The summer program provides students with the opportunity to learn and experience both traditional and modern aspects of Japan, in English. This 2-week program offers students a unique way to experience Japan, with various lectures on Japanese Culture, hands-on workshops, and field trips in and around the Tokyo area. The program also includes several hours of basic Japanese language lessons. Students are paired up with Japanese AGU students who have volunteered to help with day-to-day matters and to exchange cultural perspectives on Japanese culture as peer mentors.
