About the Essay Contest Program:
The KCC-JEE High School Essay Contest Program began in 1995. It is a unique program, established to provide American high school students with the opportunity to experience Japanese culture first-hand, enhancing their Japanese language skills and deepening their appreciation of Japanese culture and values by living in Japan for one month. They learn how to survive in a foreign country, and gain experience with Japanese people and culture by completing a month of Japanese language study in Japan.
