|The Japanese Studies Program at Illinois Wesleyan University has a strong connection
with the Japanese community. Every year, the Tanaka Foundation invites two IWU students
who show a great interest in Japanese studies for a two-week trip to Japan. The Japanese
Studies Program is designed for all the students to acquire the practical usage of
Japanese language. The courses of Japanese Studies introduce language use of the Japanese
people as well as customs and manners in Japan.
