Best thing about getting into ISI has clearly been my classmates.

Nagano Campus is located in Ueda, where the Winter Olympics 1998 took place due to its rich natural resources, and is just 1 hour and 10 minutes away by shinkansen from Tokyo.

Ueda has been known as an industrial city in Japan so, compared to bigger cities like Tokyo and Osaka, is cheaper and the beautiful scenery makes it the best environment for studying. Ski resort are 1 hour away by car so many students take the chance to ski and learn Japanese during winter.

An 800 hours per year curriculum is available for the Vocational School's Japanese Language Program.

We offer total support for job finding with the collaboration of employment centers.

In this beautiful city you can enjoy the great nature around it and experience community-based educational programs.

Best thing about getting into ISI has clearly been my classmates. Even though we come from different places, we all share a feeling of not being able to speak proper Japanese, and have been growing together and seeing each other's progress, which has helped us making irreplaceable bonds.
