Japan is one of the world’s most literate and technically advanced nations. While most of Japan is covered by mountains and heavily wooded areas, the country’s people lead a distinctly urban lifestyle. The people of Japan were culturally influenced by their neighbors but in recent times the country has combined its ancient traditions with aspects of Western life.

The political structure of Japan is a bit different from other countries, it has a parliamentary government with a constitutional monarchy. Japan still has an Emperor who holds his title as a symbol of national unity, but the elected candidates hold actual decision-making power. Japan is among the world's largest producers of motor vehicles, electronic equipment, and steel. The service sector makes up the highest percentage of the economy in terms of gross domestic product and employment.

The Japanese education system is definitely one of the most unique education systems in the world. The Japanese believe that a child should learn proper manners and etiquette before any knowledge is imparted to them. They are taught qualities like grit, self-respect, self-control, justice, etc. In the Japanese education system, students are taught to care for all living things around them and these Universities work on fine-tuning all aspects of a student’s personality and physique. Japan’s educational institutions make it mandatory for students to wear a uniform and adhere to a strict set of rules, this is done to promote a sense of unity among the students. To teach their students dignity of labor, most of the Japanese Universities do not hire a janitor or custodians but instead make the students clean their own classrooms, this is done by a specific group of students on a specific pre-decided day after they are dismissed by their professor. Keeping in mind that students require good health, the Universities provide their students with a healthy and balanced diet to help them be of sound health. Apart from traditional subjects, Japanese students also learn Japanese calligraphy and poetry.

After school workshops are also very popular among students and seeing groups of small kids return home from their extracurricular courses late in the evening is quite common in Japan. Parents in Japan are very calm while sending their kids alone by bus from the age of 6 years as Japan among some of the world’s safest countries coming in at 5th place on the World Safety Index.

Some of the best Universities in Japan are the University of Tokyo ranking 23rd worldwide and educator to 15 of Japan’s 62 Prime Ministers, Kyoto University ranked 35th and is famed to have taught 13 Nobel Laureates, Osaka University ranked 67th worldwide, Tokyo Institute of Technology ranked 58th worldwide and many more. Some of the best courses Japan has to offer are Engineering, Medicine, Language, Law, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Animation. Due to a strong economy, numerous businesses, and a low population, Japan is always searching to hire employees. ‘Lifetime-employment’ is a model used by all companies in Japan. The most prestigious companies recruit and retain the best workers by offering them better benefits and truly lifetime job security.

Japan also offers its residents a variety of leisure activities ranging from its world-famous cherry blossom festivals to its luxurious tea ceremonies. Japan is also a heaven for anime lovers. Some of its most attractive destinations are Mount Fuji, its Geishas, Shinkansen trains, Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines, its relaxing Onsens and how can one forget the world-renowned specialty of Japanese cuisine Sushi and Ramen.

In conclusion, Japan’s rich culture, its prestigious heritage, its unique education system, and hardworking people make it an incredible study destination.
