Every year the Japanese government promotes several exchange and study programs for Brazilians interested in studying and living in Japan. There are several types of pockets, for students who have finished high school, for higher education students and even teachers.

A MEXT (Japan's Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology) has already started registration for the “Japanese Language and Culture” and “Teacher Training” categories, which runs until March 4th. Each person consulted has their information about registration, details of tests and interviews and answers to all questions, we will leave the link to each of the Japanese consoles available in Brazil.

If you are interested in studying in Japan, I recommend following the details of each of the opportunities on the website. Let's summarize a little here:
