At UWC ISAK Japan, you will have the opportunity to immerse yourself in Japanese culture and get to know the residents of Karuizawa through volunteer and club activities, as well as local events.
From basketball with local high school students to participation in a traditional tea ceremony, UWC ISAK Japan gives you the chance to learn more about Japan and the wonderful people who live here. Additionally, you can spend weekends exploring the area with teachers and classmates. Cherry-blossom viewing at a nearby castle and a trip to the Karuizawa Ice Park for a curling lesson are just a small sample of the options available for weekend outings.
Grade 10 Homestays
As part of the Japanese curriculum for Grade 10 non-native Japanese speakers, students arrange weekend homestays with Japanese families. The homestay experience has proven to be one of the most rewarding (and challenging!!) experiences for pre-IBDP students.
