Sapporo Summer Institute

Area of Travel: Sapporo, Hokkaido

During the summer following their sophomore or junior year, SOGO (Intermediate to Advanced Japanese Immersion Program classes) course students at Grant High School may participate in an intensive four-week summer institute, or “Kakikenshu”, in Sapporo-city. This institute involves high-level language studies coupled with extensive field study experiences. These experiences are then connected to the students’ capstone community service projects.

Oya No Kai would like to recognize the Portland-Sapporo Sister City Association and the city of Sapporo for their support of this exchange.

Information for SSI 2020 will be available soon.  Please check back for updates.
