GO Tokyo gives you an opportunity to experience Japan’s rich tradition and culture, which includes anime, manga, video games, and food. While Tokyo is the nation's bustling capital, Japan has a clean and safe environment and courteous people. You can visit many countries other than Japan on your own later without knowing foreign languages, but now you have an opportunity to visit Japan first with GO Tokyo, which provides you with excellent guides.

This trip has fueled my passion to travel around the world to experience and appreciate [different cultures].- Ju Hwan Lee, 2017 program
I loved Japan and think I would enjoy coming back one day. I doubt that I would have as much fun without this amazing group. -David Zinn, 2016 program
This was my first time ever outside the United States and it was amazing. Go Tokyo helped me experience all of these things while I was here and I appreciate that greatly. GO Tokyo made me realize I’d like to continue to experience other cultures and explore the world. -Steven Bloom, 2016 program
I really appreciated how Dr. Lo and Torii [made] sure we are all getting the best experience possible. I wouldn’t have wanted to come to Japan with any other group. - Orvil Grunmeier, 2016 program
About GO Short:
Through intentional programming, students make the most of their short-term study abroad on GO Short programs. You will study away with Susquehanna faculty/staff leading a small group of Susquehanna classmates, all of whom have participated in the program’s preparation (i.e. GO Prep) course in the semester prior to departure. After an intensive, active program, there is a reflection course for the program to optimize your cross-cultural learning. As these programs run during winter or summer breaks and are 2-6 weeks, they are great opportunities for students to study away without committing to a full semester.
