- TUJ '15-'16 Academic Year12/15/16
TUJ is a great place to study in Japan if you don't know too much Japanese or aren't that proficient in the language yet because all of the classes are in English. Going to TUJ also offers you the opportunity to interact with not only Japanese students
but other foreign students as well. I knew people that went there from France, Sweden, etc. The staff there are also lovely and will help you in anything that you need.read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

TUJ is great. You cannot go wrong when you use Temple to study abroad. I am a Temple main campus student but I wish I could transfer to TUJ. All the staff from the beginning of the application period to your departure back home are so supportive and attentive
to your needs. The school is on the smaller side but it is close and in some cases walking distance to busy districts. Since the school is smaller the staff are more focused on your needs. The program offers you lots of opportunities to see other parts of Japan and to experience Japan'c cultures such as skiing in the mountains, overnight stays in traditional onsens, tea ceremonies, taiko drumming shows, sumo wrestling, overnight trips to surrounding islands and much more. And if you cant make it to the scheduled events, they will work with you to set up your own trip whether its solo or with friends. TUJ is also the only university in Japan that is taught in all english with exception of their Japanese language courses. The dorms are great with a cafeteria and private in room bath, kitchen and balcony. Studying Abroad has been a life changing experience and I have learned so much about myself and the Japanese culture. If I was given the chance to do it all again I would still choose Temple as my program.read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
- Spring '15 in Tokyo11/08/15
My time in Tokyo was incredible. TUJ is a small, but very interested campus with lots of potential classes to take. It is only a short train ride away from many different sights in the city. The program is conducted in a very nice manner from start to
finish. The staff were very helpful if I had any questions and there were fun trips and activities to participate in throughout the semester. I really enjoyed my time at TUJ.read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
