Off-Campus options include local homestay, or making your own arrangements to suit personal preferences.
*Please be aware that you have to arrange Off-Campus Housing by yourself in advance of your arrival to Japan.
Please note that you will need to cover transportation costs (approx. 20,000 JPY to 30,000 JPY) and some commutes may take up to 60 minutes each way in rush hour trains. It is possible to purchase a regular commuter pass which will be better value than simply buying tickets every day. These are available for purchase at train station ticket machines or at the JR Midori Ticket Offices.
Living with a Japanese family will enable you to experience Japanese culture, daily life and also to practice your Japanese language.
