“Everyone was extremely welcoming, with a sense of hospitality that could rival Ireland’s. Especially in Seiryo, where I went to school, people were often very confident and hilarious! Everyone was eager to converse with me, and extremely kind when I visited their clubs or tried to join their activities” Vanessa, 2018

This exciting programme will take you to beautiful Japan for four weeks. During this time, you will live with a host family, visit school and act as an Ambassador for Ireland, sharing Irish culture and tradition as you learn about that of Japan. The Award is fully funded by EIL.
