The border was closed to limit the further spread of coronavirus; travel restrictions are in place worldwide in 2021. It catapulted the virtual study abroad program to the forefront. With the rise of virtual learning alternatives, students can study abroad during the Covid-19 pandemic. International Virtual Study Abroad is now gaining popularity as a new approach to providing international experiences to Japanese students. This study analyzes the reports of the virtual study in 2021 and the reports of study abroad in 2019 used by the software called KH Coder. We conclude that the quality of English education is equal, and the effect of the experience of the Short Summer Program is almost the same. Only cultural education is not enough when students take the virtual study abroad program. Students cannot feel and learn “culture” itself virtually. As a result, building a blended educational program both virtual study with domestic support is one solution for the better results possible for students.
