We do not introduce international students to host families, but we sometimes offer information on events arranged by international student support groups. Many of these events include opportunities to visit a Japanese home or experience Japanese culture. Throughout the year, particularly during break periods, short-term homestay programs(ranging from 2-3 days to 1-2 weeks) for international students are offered by various organizations in both urban and rural areas of Japan. These kinds of programs are a great opportunity to learn more about local Japanese culture. Home visits to Japanese families are arranged by international student support groups established by alumni. If you are interested, refer to the International Center website below.
