As mentioned at the introduction of this page, Kyoritsu International Foundation understands that one of the biggest worries international students have is the high cost for accommodations in Japan. Thus, the foundation made it a priority to provide assistance through this program, meant only for international students.

If you are applying for a Japanese language school through us as well, we will assist you in sorting out and applying for other available dormitories (usually tied to your school).

If we are not the agents handling your school application, you will be asked to seek assistance from your school instead.

Most of the time, it is due to no available dormitories near your school.

As such, we advise you to apply with us after you have completed the application for your school.
