Public Japanese Schools

The local Japanese public schools can be an enriching and rewarding opportunity. It requires adjusting to a new school system and experience. The school calendar, schedules, etc in addition to the language and culture may feel challenging. School communication is in Japanese so it is preferred that at least one parent speaks Japanese. Schools may refuse non-Japanese citizens or non-Japanese speaking students. Some may allow if a family arranges for a permanent/on-call interpreter for the family and some districts are reviewing their policies to enact changes.
Surrounding Japanese school districts:
