The Shizuoka Study Tour


COIL virtual exchange programs aim to provide multi-layered educational opportunities for students in Japan and the United States. As part of this project, we will conduct a three-day study tour for American students to visit companies in this prefecture.
This tour will encourage international students to understand the diversity of Japan's economy and industry and learn from comparisons with their own countries through visits to companies unique to Shizuoka Prefecture, in diverse sectors, from agriculture to manufacturing. In addition, our students will accompany the tour as assistants who will support the international students in their communication with local business stakeholders. Our objective is to help promote student exchange between Japan and the United States as well as deepen international understanding of the region.

* Due to the spread of the coronavirus, the study tours from August 2020 to August 2022 have been canceled.

We conducted a study tour in August 2019 in which American students and our students visited companies in the prefecture.

For three days from August 5 to 7, 2019, we conducted a study tour in collaboration with Sophia University; American exchange students studying at Sophia University and students of our university visited companies in the prefecture. The tour was mainly conducted in English. Four American students and four Sophia University students visited companies unique to Shizuoka Prefecture, home to diverse businesses, such as agriculture and manufacturing. The students learned about Shizuoka's industries while the program contributed to enhancing student exchanges between Japan and the U.S.

We also invited Mr. Hitoshi Ikushima, senior coordinator of the Shizuoka International Business Association, to participate in a preparatory class conducted in English on July 10, prior to the tour.
