Economics Study trips to Japan
Our Economics Study Trips to Japan gives students the opportunity to experience one of the fastest-growing economies in the world today. Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka are just some of our operating bases in this fascinating country. In addition to hotels catered to western tourists, there’s also a myriad of traditional accommodation options to choose from.
Riding Tokyo on a Bullet
Nothing will prepare you for the sheer size, sounds, and fluorescents of Tokyo until you exit the Subway at Shibuya. The sheer scale of this country’s booming economy hits you as you zoom in on the Shinkansen. Now an iconic part of Tokyo’s identity, this high-speed bullet train exemplifies the enormity and efficiency of the city’s rapid growth. In fact, the Shinkansen train covers all aspects of the KS3 and KS4 economics curriculum through its contributions to tourism, workforce, and transportation.
The Shinkansen bullet train is just one of our featured excursions on our sports tours to Japan. It was invented by Japan’s chief railway engineer, Hideo Shima who wanted to design the trains to “feel like an airplane”. It can reach speeds of up to 320 km/hr! #shinkansen #japanesebullettrain #japan #deliveringtheunexpected
