ESL schools guarantee the same excellent standards for accommodation as they do for teaching. We take great pleasure in helping you find the most suitable accommodation for you.


Host family

ESL host family accommodation japan

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.

Guest House

ESL Languages Kudan institute Guest house

This Guest House is ideal for travellers who want to make friends with both locals and international students in a typical Japanese shared house, just 30-40 minutes from the school by public transport. Students will stay in a single room equipped with a bed, desk, chair, a small fridge (in some cases), WiFi, and access to a shared bathroom. Bed linen is included, but students should bring their towels — both can be cleaned for a fee using the shared laundry facilities. Students will be responsible for keeping their space clean and preparing their own meals in the equipped shared kitchen. Between classes, students can socialise with their housemates in the shared lounge.
