The following payment methods are available: Bank transfer or credit card payment via our online payment portal (Flywire), bank transfer within Japan, international bank transfer and Paypal. In general we recommend Flywire as the cheapest and easiest option for most students. Except for Flywire, all payments must be made in Japanese yen.

2) International bank transfer
You can transfer funds directly from your bank in your home country to our bank in Japan. In this case, bank transfer fees are usually levied in both the source and destination countries, with the total varying, but often around 5000-6500 yen. It generally takes funds about 3-5 days to arrive. Remember to specify that you want to pay transaction fees separately from the sum total to transfer.

3) Bank transfer within Japan

Payment can be made directly using Paypal, with a
4.2% service fee added. This is the fastest payment method, but the fee can become quite large for large transfers. If the total transfer is more than about 150,000 yen, an international bank transfer would probably be cheaper, and Flywire is almost always cheaper.
For Paypal transfers, we will send an invoice to your email address through the Paypal system.
