Under-18 students must stay with a host family, or in one of the specified dormitories.


The opportunity to stay with a Japanese host family is the perfect way to immerse yourself in the culture, and practice at "home" Homestay familywhat you learned at school that day.

When arranging a host family for you, we try to take into account any needs or preferences you may have, such as smoker or non-smoker, allergies, English ability, and so on. Your host family can act as guides and mentors, friends and companions, and a wonderful resource in your adventure in Japan. They are likely to be the people you become closest to during your stay, which is why we perform a thorough screening of all host family applicants, to ensure that they can provide a suitable environment to assist your learning and to allow you to fully experience Japan.

Host families are chosen to be as close to the school, and the center of Fukuoka City, as possible. All host families are within one hour traveling time of the school by public transport. You are guaranteed to have your own private room, which may be either Japanese or Western style.

Breakfast is included at all homestays. If you want to have dinner with the family every night too, you can book the halfboard option. It is sometimes possible to book dinner only on certain days, but please note that some families are not able to provide dinners for students, so if you think you might want to have dinner on some days, please mention this in your application form so that we can place you with a family where this is possible.
