Our study abroad program in Japan in the fall semester is hosted by Bunkyo Gakuin University, our over twenty-five-year-long collaborative partner. Bunkyo is located in central Tokyo, with a dorm adjacent to the campus for CSB/SJU students along with other international students. During the stay you will enjoy field trips to Nikko, Kyoto, Nara, Hiroshima, and Karuizawa.

Our three-week-long May-term Study Tour to Japan is also hosted by Bunkyo, coupled with field trips to Kyoto, Hiroshima, and Takayama.
