KCP is a wonderful program for those looking to, 1) see their Japanese abilities exponentially grow, and 2) to experience the culture hands-on. It’s also a program for those who don’t simply seek to party either. The program’s rigorous and demands attention to your school work, health, and managing time in between. Basically, you live, eat, and breathe a Japanese lifestyle. It’s great.

—Valerie Taylor

The most productive and interesting parts of the program were the daily class supplemented by English class. It helped me retain so much of the information. I tried to come up with something that was uninteresting or not productive, but I really can’t think of anything. Nonproductive and KCP don’t fit in the same sentence!

—Megan Comerford

Which events or activities did you find the most satisfying and why?

Kevin from Summer Short 2017

I enjoyed the Yamanashi Bus Trip because it provided opportunities to practice regular conversation with the teachers and staff who accompanied us, something which is harder to do during a regular school day. Things such as the peach eating and zazen practice also aren’t things one would usually do on a personal sightseeing trip.
