Accommodation in Tokyo
Homestay with a Japanese speaking family
Homestay with a Japanese speaking family is the ideal way to learn more about the Japanese way of life and at the same time it is a great opportunity for the student to practice the Japanese language with native speakers in real-life situations. Our homestay coordinator carefully interviews and selects the host families to ensure that the students will be able to learn Japanese language with them. Once they are in the programme, the coordinator regularly visits them to ensure that high standards are maintained permanently. There are about 160 host families, which are currently active in the program. Most of these families have experience in hosting international students and are thus able to adapt to each student’s needs.
Accommodation in a dormitory is another option for students who wish to be more independent and share their spare time with other students, while at the same time learning Japanese language. Students can choose between the school and a private dormitory. The school dormitory offers single and double rooms while the private dormitory offers only private rooms. In the private dormitory, students are required to pay a deposit in advance whereas in the school dormitory there is no need to pay a deposit. Each room is equipped with a bed, a desk and a chair. The bathroom, the shower, the kitchen and the laundry facilities, as well as TV are shared with other students. As Tokyo is spread over 1’700 square kilometres, the journey from a dormitory to the school takes about one hour.
