What is TOKIHA?

TOKIHA Summer Camp is a 5-day program in Japan where local high school students and college students from America gather. We aim that high school students to be exposed to new ideas, rethink who they are, and ultimately liberate themselves from their own shells.

We lead college student counselors to create their own workshops that leave an enjoyable and rewarding experience to both themselves and participants. The program which is run in English consists of student-made workshops, team activities, guest speakers, and fun events.

High School Students: Get Yourself Out There and Enjoy To The Fullest

The time when you are a high school student is also the time when you get the most influence in your life. We invite motivated students to the camp where they can step outside their everyday business, meet new diverse groups of people, and think in ways they haven’t before.

"I used to lack confidence when talking in front of other people. But in the five days, I was able to meet contemporaries, expose myself, utilize the opportunity to share ambitions, and ultimately got a hint how to transform myself. TOKIHA is just a beginning of transformation."


Daiki Urakawa, Participant

"When TOKIHA ended, I felt that I am a different person. We learned things that are more precious than what you learn on desks. Before, I thought I was less competent in English, so I was kind of running away from it. So I needed a lot of courage to participate in TOKIHA. But when I did, I felt much joy in communicating with foreigners in English with just a little bit of courage."

Nurturing confidence in English through conversations, discussions, and expressions.

empower to find more ways to grow within our day to day lives

TOKIHA Camps

For several months in preparation, the counselors communicate with others from different backgrounds, brainstorm ideas about workshops, and strive to ultimately create the ideal summer camp that can move the hearts of participants.

The college students form their own curriculum and workshops and then implement their original ideas at the camp. Our slogan is to “liberate your mind” and we want to help foster major personal growth in the students and help them to broaden their horizons. We aim to empower the youth to express themselves and their ideas in ways that traditional systems do not allow.

For you, this is a chance to work with high school students as educators, mentors, and peers in a unique, two-way learning experience. No year is the same at TOKIHA. The content is constantly changing and improving to fit the counselors and the students. We also work with college students in Japan for a cross-cultural collaborative experience! Counselors learn how to work with people on an international level and build an interesting resume. At 19 or 20 years old, most people don’t have anything on their resume, but TOKIHA is a place to start for someone of little to no prior time abroad or internship experience. It’s eye-catching to future employers because of the global appeal. Thus, this is a great opportunity to not only go to Japan and teach, but to gain networking experience and make lifetime friends and connections as we all come together to make this dream happen.

2018 Camps

Program Length Expansion

In 2016 and 2017, we had 5-Day program which was found to be too short for counselors and campers to fully mingle to empower each other. So this year, we are going to expand our program to 7 days to fully accomplish our aim for the camps.

Workshop-Making Enforcement

2018 is the year that we are going to shift our focus from experiments to empowerments. With two years of experience running three camps, we are now ready to simply concentrate on our essentials.
