Internship in Japan

Japan is also known as the “Land of the rising sun”. Behind Japan there is much more than sushi, sumo and geishas. You will love its wonderful temples, palaces and gardens the moment you set your eyes on them!

Discover the diversity and beauty of Japan’s southernmost island Kyushu during your PractiGo foreign work placement in Fukuoka. The city has around 1.5 million inhabitants and, due to its location in Hakata Bay, is a well-known city for trade and Japan’s hub for international relationships. During your internship in Japan, you’ll have the chance to immerse yourself in the secrets of the Japanese culture and language.
