Program Description

Spring Break 2019

Oshare, pronounced o-sha-reh, is a Japanese word widely used to describe things that are fashionable, trendy, or in style. From food to fashion, this spring break trip allows students to immerse themselves in Japan's culture and discover their own meaning of the oshare lifestyle. Through exploring the traditional, natural beauty of Kyoto, as well as the fast-paced, fashion center of Tokyo, students will learn about Japan's rich cultural history, gain an understanding of the evolution of Japanese style, food, and fashion, and gain the ability to make connections between past and present oshare and where they join together. Join us!
