Exchange Program to Japan Fully Funded The JENESYS Programme (Japan-East Asia Network of Exchange for Students and Youths)


The JENESYS Programme (Japan-East Asia Network of Exchange for Students and Youths) is a project advanced by the Japanese government from the standpoint of providing a sound foundation for strong solidarity within Asia through large-scale youth exchange.

For a five-year period since 2007, we are carrying out exchange programmes aimed at promoting mutual understanding and friendly relations.

As one of the implementing organizations for this programme, JICE (Japan International Cooperation Center) is in charge of conducting the programme in cooperation with various local governments, schools, and international exchange organizations in each area.


The programme has three types of specific projects: acceptance (invitation), dispatch, and exchange.Please refer to the following explanation for details.

JENESYS is an exchange programme to invite approximately 6,000 youths from overseas to Japan every year with a view towards promoting mutual understanding and friendship with Japanese youths and citizens.

JICE has been conducting a short-term invitation programme, inviting 3,000 to 4,000 youngsters to Japan each year.

A group of approximately 30 to 200 youths visits Japan and stays for around 10 days; first participating in a common programme in Tokyo, and then dividing into subgroups of 20 to 30 youths, each joining a local programme. Group programmes are mainly composed of school visits and home stays to promote mutual understanding, friendship, and trust through firsthand exchange with Japanese students and local residents. For some specific fields, we also offer programmes that combine exchange and training.
