Japan is a captivating and fascinating place for study abroad. The country is a dichotomy of worlds—from the serenity of bamboo forests and teahouses to its impact on the frontier of new technologies. The island nation of Japan features dense cities, imperial palaces, shrines, and mountainous national parks. Shinkansen, or high-speed bullet trains, connect Japan's main islands, creating a link between subtropical beaches, skiing meccas, and Tokyo, the nation's capital.
