Sixth Form Japan Day: a global perspective, a door to new opportunities

9 November 2012, London

The Japan Society, in association with Ritsumeikan (UK), is pleased to invite sixth formers to attend a FREE one-day course about Japan, its culture and its role in the global community.


The day is designed to give insights into aspects of Japan, traditional and modern, through lectures and practical workshops. It is aimed at students who are studying Japanese, but will also be of interest to those who have not had the opportunity to do so formally at school, but who are considering Japanese studies at university in the UK or applying to do other subjects at university in Japan.


The course will feature a lecture on the Japanese Exchange and Teaching (JET) Programme providing an insight in modern Japanese culture. Elective practical workshops in small groups will allow students to experience a range of activities, including Japanese language, tea ceremony, martial arts, sashiko, sumie ink painting, cookery and manga. Information on Japan-related study and career options will give pointers on opportunities for students hoping to pursue their interest beyond school. Please bring your own lunch on the day.


RESERVE YOUR PLACES TODAY! Places are limited and will be issued on a first-come-first-served basis. Students may attend on their own or accompanied by a member of staff.  For further information, or to book places, please contact Matthew Devanny on tel: 020 7592 7037 or email:  Alternatively, please return this booking form by post or fax.
