In 2003 just prior to Coupey's retirement, Coupey received a one month faculty exchange at Capilano College's sister school Aichi Gakusen College, Okazaki, Japan in the Aichi Prefecture. Aichi Gakusen, like Capilano College, is a coed liberal arts college situated in Aichi, Japan. One of the College's goals is to offer a faculty exchange to Capilano instructors to pursue their professional development projects as they relate to Japan. As part of the Faculty exchange, Capilano College faculty are to provide lectures, have office hours available to students and assist with orientation of Aichi Gakusen students, who may eventually attend Capilano College. While at Aichi, Coupey researched calligraphy from the Kamakura period, 14th to 16th C. During his stay, Coupey was fortunate to attend three major exhibitions of Kamakura period work in Kyoto, which provided in-depth research for his Faculty Exchange.
