  • Not Recommended

    While Temple University is the only 4 year American University in Japan. It comes with a lot of down sides you must consider before you join. While, there are certainly a handful of good professors there is more than a fair share of down right bad ones.

  • Good Program

    This program allowed me to participate in an internship, home stay, cultural activities, and helped me to practice my Japanese language skills. Temple is very good with placing you in an internship and making sure you are prepared to begin day-to-day
