Home-Visit Program Information for Host Family
"U.E.C. Home-Visit Program" aims to get mutual understandings and friendship between foreign students and local residents through cultural exchange. We find your host family who lives in Chofu or its environs. You can visit their home and spend time with them. You will be exposed to Japanese traditional culture. This is a good chance if you are interested in Japanese culture and want to come in touch it. Furthermore, the program is worth joining because you will get a good opportunity to try to practice your Japanese. We encourage your participation
You can spend a half day with your host family on weekends. You meet your family at U.E.C. and we introduce you to them. We give them some information about you in advance. First of all, they take you home. Some of them take you somewhere, such as tourist facilities nearby, on the way home. You and your family can make a plan of the day freely. So, you can discuss with your family about what you do or when you finish.
- meet Japanese cuisine ( e.g. Sushi, Tempura, cooking Japanese food together )
- visit Shrines, temples and tourists facilities nearby ( Jindai-ji, Jindai Botanical Garden )
- play sports or enjoying picnics in a park nearby
- dress in Japanese traditional cloths Kimono, Yukata and Hakama
- discuss the difference between the home countries
- join in a local activity ( e.g. festivals, parties or international events )
