Summer Program "Man’yo"date; 7/26 - 8/7
Aiming to train internationally active pro-Japan female leaders, Nara Women’s University conducts a summer program for students of Asian and Western partner universities with which it has student-exchange agreements.

This program is intended for students who can already speak Japanese (at level N3 or higher). It will deepen their understanding of Japan’s culture and society from a variety of perspectives and from the past until the present. This will be done through lectures and practical exercises that will give them a solid grasp of the history and traditional culture of both Nara and Japan, as well as through activities focused on issues seen across the country, such as depopulation and the aging of society.
