Say konnichiwa to Japan for a lifechanging school sports tour. The experience of exploring Japanese culture through a shared passion for sport will, quite simply, blow your students’ minds and will be something they never forget.

Japan is unlike anywhere else on Earth. This spectacular country boasts a unique blend of ancient and modern.
