Internships in Japan


Japan: Fukuoka


Japan is also known as the “Land of the rising sun”, or as the Japanese call it “Nihon” or “Nippon”. The country consists of over three thousand islands extending along the Pacific Coast of Asia. Together they are often known as the Japanese Archipelago.

Japan is famously known for its sushi, sumo and geishas, as well as its beautiful temples, palaces and breathtaking gardens.

The city has around 1.5 million inhabitants and, due to its location in Hakata Bay, is a well-known city for trade and Japan’s hub for international relationships. During your internship in Japan, you’ll have the chance to immerse yourself in the secrets of the Japanese culture and language.

10 Overall Experience

Summer Internship in Japan

I really like how I can choose my own internship through this program and pick any kind of industry that I'm interested in. I plan to work for Education to teach Japanese students English as their second language and develop English proficiency skills. I also like how you can still get support while doing your internship here. I studied abroad in Tokyo from September until February of this year and I still want to experience the Japanese culture in the rural side of Japan!
