Few Things to Know About Japan

Japan, known as “Land of Rising Sun” located in the Pacific Ocean lies to the east of the Sea of Japan, the East China Sea, China, Korea, and Russia, stretching from the Sea of Okhotsk in the north to the East China Sea and Taiwan in the south. Japan has recently been noticed the third-largest economy in the world behind the US and China. Its economic strength is at least partly due to the strong research and development industry that underlies successful international brands such as Nissan, Toyota, Panasonic, Canon, and Sony – as well as producing robots for every need imaginable. Unsurprisingly, an excellent higher education system lies behind all this innovation.

Japan is divided into five regions: Tohoku, from north of Kanto to Tsugaru Strait; Kanto, embracing seven prefectures in the Tokyo-Yokohama region; the Chubu, or central, region, from west of Tokyo to the Nagoya area; Kinki, including the important cities of Kyoto, Osaka, Kobe, and Nara; and Chugoku, a narrow peninsula thrusting westward from Kinki between the Sea of Japan and the Inland Sea, which lies between southern Honshū and the island of Shikoku.

WHY STUDY IN JAPAN?

Japanese schools have extremely high educational standards and are among the world leaders in state-of-the-art technology and research. In addition to technical acumen, Japanese universities are also highly regarded in other academic disciplines such as political science. Thirteen universities currently offer programs taught in English.

Japan is extremely open to international students; more than 130,000 foreign students study in the country every year. Japan plans to more than double the number of international students by 2020 in part by offering more programs in English.

EDUCATION SYSTEM

Japan’s education system played a central part in a Japan’s recovery and rapid economic growth in the decades following the end of World War II. The schooling years in the Japanese education system are segmented along the lines of 6-3-3-4: 6 years of primary or elementary school; 3 years of middle or junior high school; 3 years of high school; and 4 years of university. However, the compulsory education covers elementary school and junior High school.

Beyond Academics, students are also encouraged to maintain cooperative relationships with their peers; to follow the set school routines; and to value punctuality. Classroom management emphasizes student responsibility and stewardship through emphasis on daily chores such as cleaning of desks and scrubbing of classroom floors. Students are encouraged to develop strong loyalties to their social groups, e.g. to their class, their sports-day teams, their after-school circles, e.g. baseball and soccer teams. Leadership as well as subordinate roles, as well as group organization skills are learnt through assigned roles for lunchtime, class monitor or class chairperson and other such duties.
