Students' Voice

Fun and lively atmosphere. The dorm dad and mom are also kind!

I entered the dormitory in October. The dorm dad and mom are also very kind to everyone, so living here is very enjoyable and lively. From here onward I'm aiming to enroll in university or vocational school in Japan!

Getting to know students from all over the world!

Everyone is kind. I also made new friends!

I entered the dormitory in October. I was very worried about living apart from my family for the first time but I am very happy now because I made new friends in the dorm. I am interested in nutrition, but I am also interested on learning a lot of things about Japan, that way when I return to China in the future I can be successful.

Station and convenient store are near, so life is easy.

I joined the dormitory in July. It is close to the station and very convenient because there's a convenient store nearby. My Japanese level is still beginner's so I often talk in English and Chinese. I think it is the best environment for students who also want to learn English and Chinese.
