Aiming to train internationally active pro-Japan female leaders, Nara Womenfs University conducts a summer program for students of Asian and Western partner universities with which it has student-exchange agreements.

This program is scheduled to be implemented in 2018 and will be conducted all in English.
Nara Womenfs University is located in Nara, having easy access to many World Heritage Sites including Todai-ji temple and Kofuku-ji temple, which means students have a wonderful opportunity of studying and experiencing traditional Japanese culture and Japanese history.

At the same time, Japan has notable modern culture such as manga or anime, and it is popular all over the world.
In this program, students will study and experience both traditional and modern Japanese culture through many lectures and various field works as well as interactions with NWU students, and will discuss the unique and universal aspects of Japanese culture by comparing it with their own culture.
