Abstract: In the last one hundred years, educational travel has been undergoing far-reaching changes that have increased its significance in fulfilling two functions. The first function was a "traditional," individual one, made for personal reasons such as the intellectual and professional development of the student in his specialized field of study, the learning of a foreign language, and the increasing of knowledge and understanding of other peoples and cultures. The second, and more recent function, was to achieve socio-political and economic goals such as the modernization of a country and the development of world understanding.1 These two functions, however, can gain significance only through their historical context. The following illustrations, which are primarily the main aspects of various periods of the history of educational travel, will relate the two functions within their historical contexts. In addition, more emphasis will be placed on Japan's role in educational travel since this paper is primarily concerned with foreign study in Japan.
