Internships in Japan

Why Japan?

Japan is a portal through which the uber-modern and the timeless meet. Be it in a teahouse or amidst the rock garden of a Buddhist temple, there is harmony amidst the hustle. One of the more memorable IGS placements came of the heels of the tsunami that devastated the northern provinces. A student came to us in search of an internship that would allow him to help the victims and their families. We confirmed him with a Red Cross organization delivering food to people struggling to get back on their feet. Business and marketing internships in Tokyo are another great option for students looking East. They look great on a resume provide insight into international trade. For getaways, our students have traveled to Mt. Fuji to seek the iconic volcano up close and personal. And in Tokyo, they have watched prized fish at tuna auctions sell for thousands of dollars.

The kanji that make up Japan’s name mean “sun origin,” and it is often called the “Land of the Rising Sun.” Japan is a volcanic archipelago consisting of about 6,852 islands. The four largest are Honshu, Hokkaido, Kyushu, and Shikoku, which make up about ninety-seven percent of Japan’s land area and often are referred to as home islands. The population of almost 127 million is the world’s tenth largest, of which 98.5% are ethnic Japanese. 90.7% of people live in cities, while 9.3% live in the countryside.
