Homestay

TUJ offers a limited number of homestays for international students with Japanese families. This is a good option for students who wish to become more immersed in Japanese culture and language. Students in homestays will be provided two meals a day and will have a private room. In order to make the best of this experience, students will be expected to adjust to the host family's living arrangement, "live locally," eat a Japanese diet with the host family, participate in Japanese family life, and spend meaningful time with the family. Preference for selection will be given to students who demonstrate cultural sensitivity, flexibility, and a genuine interest and commitment to Japanese culture by speaking Japanese (or be willing to learn, if a beginner) and abiding by Japanese values and customs.
