Host family

ESL host family accommodation japan

The host families carefully selected by the Genki school have a great sense of hospitality and a real desire to share their language and culture with you. Most of the families live near the city centre, around 30 minutes from the school by public transport. You will stay in a single room with half board provided. Living with a Japanese family is an excellent opportunity to discover Japanese customs and culinary traditions but also to practise the language daily. You needn't worry about your level of Japanese; even beginners manage to make themselves understood with these welcoming Japanese families.
