In Japan, club activities at high schools are an essential part of school life. At the Asano Academy, there are more than 30 clubs to choose from. Club practice takes place after classes (frequency depending on each club). Club activities encourage students to set a goal, think about how to achieve it, and concentrate on practicing and training until they can reach it. We believe this skill can be applied to any challenge in life.

Model United Nations
One of Asano’s special activities is Model United Nations (MUN).
Model United Nations (MUN) is a student simulation of the proceedings of the United Nations. Students, referred to as Delegates, are assigned a country to represent one of the UN’s numerous committees with pre-set topics to debate. They research the background of their country, their country's position on the topics at hand, and prepare notes on possible solutions to the problems faced. Students then convene at Model UN conferences, which range in size from 100 to 5,000 delegates, to debate their assigned topics with students representing the other UN member states. Much like the real UN, the goal is to identify solutions, by negotiation and consensus, on which many countries can agree. ---What is Model United Nations?
