Can I become an exchange student in japan now?

Question:I'm in 8th grade and I've heard you have to wait till highschool to become one. I'm currently studying the language (I just began a few weeks ago). I also want to know some good sites. Plus I have a lolita dress and I'm wondering if I will look silly in because im african american and not japanese.

You will have to wait until high school. Most exchange programs take students 15-18 (sometimes 14 to apply, but must be 15 to go). The best time to go abroad is your junior year, then you are usually mature enough to handle it, but can return in time for the fun of your senior year.

It's really great that you are already taking Japanese! By the time you are ready to go, you will have a great head start on almost all other Americans who apply!

You can find a list of all the organizations that are certified to operate in the U.S. at Also, talk to your high school counselor (when you get there). He/she will know the ones that operate in your area.

This is a great idea and it's a wonderful opportunity for you ... keep working toward your goal! An exchange year is expensive, so by knowing early you would like to go, you can prepare both culturally, language wise AND financially!

Good luck!
