This summer study abroad program provides a wonderful opportunity for immersion not only in Japanese culture but also in other Asian cultures. With almost half of the faculty and student body comprised of foreign nationals, from all over Asia and other parts of the world, Asia Pacific University (Ritsumeikan) has a truly international campus environment of cultural coexistence. One of the program's attractions is that APU students participate as "buddies" to help program participants. There are a few activities that can only be experienced through this program such as Hotsprings Tour and Farm Stay.

The program will be held at Asia Pacific University (Ritsumeikan) in Beppu. Beppu is a city located in Oita Prefecture on the island of Kyushu, which is situated between the sea and the mountains. It is one of Japan's most famous hot springs (onsen) resorts, producing more onsen water than any other resort in the country. Students can enjoy various types of baths including ordinary hot water baths, mud baths, sand baths, and steam baths.

Florida Interantional University partners with Asia Pacific University for this program, and students will live in student housing provided by them.
