For outstanding students


Affiliated Dormitory


Kamiyama Gakuin Japanese Language School is affiliated with local student dormitories (separately for male and female students).
These dormitories are clean, affordable and convenient, providing the majority of facilities needed for your stay, including the provision of two meals per day.
Students not living with a guardian in Japan are strongly recommended to live in the affiliated dormitory for at least 6 months to get settled in Japan smoothly.
