About Japan?

Japan is an island country situated in East Asia surrounded by the Sea of Japan, Sea of Okhotsk, the East China Sea and Taiwan. The mainland includes five main islands which are Hokkaido, Honshu, Okinawa, Shikoku, and Kyushu. The total area of Japan is 377,975 km2 and a population of 125 million is one of the most populated countries in the world. Tokyo is the capital and the largest city of Japan, Osaka and Nagoya are some of the other major cities.

Japan’s history goes back to as far as 1st century AD but it wasn’t until between the 4th and 9th centuries when Japan was united under one Emperor. However, starting in the 12th century Japan was divided and ruled by various rulers namely military dictators or shogun, feudal lord or daimyo, and warrior nobility known as samurai. Japan was involved in a century-long civil war and in 1603 it was once again united under the Tokugawa Shogunate.

After that, for a long period of time Japan kept itself isolated from the outside world but from 1854 to 1868 the United States forced Japan to open trade to the West. Japan was heavily involved in the Second World War as a major axis power. But after two atomic bombings, Japan surrenders in 1945.

Modern-day Japan is one of the great powers in the world. They saw major economic growth after World War 2 became one of the most developed countries in the world. Japan made significant contributions to science and technology and a global leader in the automotive and electronics industries. Japan is also known for its art, music, cuisine, and many popular cultures like animation and video game industry.

A student educated in a country where primary and secondary education (including high school) lasts for less than 12 years will become qualified for admission if he or she completes a college preparatory course designated by the Japanese Minister of Education and the student is over 18 years old.

Those who have qualifications such as an International Baccalaureate or Abitur and are aged at least 18 years are also qualified for admission to a Japanese university

There is only one official language spoken in Japan, which is of course Japanese. However, many Japanese are able to understand English to a certain extent since English is a foreign language that everyone must learn as part of compulsory education.

The general case of studying in Japan begins with a student first enrolling in a Japanese-language institute. The student takes an entrance exam and enrolls in a university or other institute of higher education after they study Japanese and other subjects at a Japanese language institute for one to two years.

For this reason, the choice of a Japanese-language institute becomes extremely important for a prospective student.
