The school has carefully selected a network of host families ready to welcome international students. You will be hosted in a single room with half-board during the week and full-board at the weekend. Japanese culture places great importance on hospitality. When a family receives someone, they do it well and genuinely care about their guest’s well being. Therefore, don’t be surprised if you’re asked to return home at a specific time each evening! The families mainly live in the residential areas of Kanagawa, Chiba, and Saitama, around an hour's journey from the school, which is a good average considering Tokyo’s size. Please note: you will need to allow about 25,000 yen per month for public transport costs between your accommodation and the school.
Important: You will need to arrange your own accommodation for the first night if arriving to the airport after 18:00.
If you wish to be more independent, and for a minimum stay of one month, it is also possible to stay in a guesthouse or shared apartment in Tokyo, around 25-30 minutes from the school by train. The guesthouse is popular with international as well as Japanese students. Price on request.
After classes, go out and discover Tokyo, the largest urban centre in the world, and allow yourself to be taken over by the magic of a city where everything is possible. Wander around Tokyo, from the Meiji Jingu shrine to the Ningyocho (Doll Town) district, passing by the Electric Town of Akihabara. Whether you're a fan of Japanese culture or thirsty for shopping and the latest gadgets, the city will be able to satisfy your every desire. Jimbocho, Tokyo’s most famous secondhand book district is within walking distance of the school, as is the entertainment hub of the Suidobashi Tokyo Dome and the Kudanshita Imperial Palace, famous for its cherry blossoms. In around 15 minutes, you can be in the fashionable districts of Shibuya or Shinjuku.
The school offers an excellent range of activities in the city and its surroundings. The nearby peaks are ideal for biking, hiking and climbing. And if you really want to learn the Japanese way of life, don't forget the tea ceremony, flower arrangement, cooking classes, calligraphy or going to see a sumo match. If you are lucky enough to be in Tokyo at the arrival of spring, Hanami is the very traditional cherry blossom picnics to celebrate with friends.
