This is the ideal option if you wish to immerse yourself in daily Tokyo life. In a country with a very different culture, staying with a Japanese family can be a comfort and allows you to experience the lifestyle of a typical family from the Tokyo area. You will stay in a single room and receive half-board accommodation. The families live within an hour to 90 minutes of the course centre by public transport. A homestay can be a convenient option to get your bearings in Japan for the first few weeks. You then have the possibility of choosing another accommodation type among those offered by the school in order to discover a different, more independent way of living in Tokyo.
ISI Language School-Tokyo offers the chance to stay in a guesthouse (Warabi, Matsudo or Nerima). This is the option which is most often chosen by European students. You will have your own small bedroom and share the common areas (kitchen/dining area, laundry, showers, living room with TV and Wi-Fi) with the other residents. You will need to allow about 45 minutes by train to get to school and around 12,000 yen per month for transport costs.
Depending on the duration of your stay in Japan, the school can offer you two pleasant residences located a short distance from public transport. Situated at about 25 minutes by train from the school, the Tokiwadai and Ekoda residences are available for stays of 2 weeks and upwards. You will have a single room with a private bathroom, air conditioning, free internet access, a TV, small refrigerator and telephone (receiving calls is free, but an extra charge applies for making calls). Cooking equipment is available at reception upon request. Microwave ovens, vending machines for drinks and newspapers as well as coin-operated laundry facilities are available on-site. Bed linen is provided.
After class, you will certainly find plenty to occupy your afternoons and evenings. Travel around Tokyo, from the Imperial Palace to the electric town of Akihabara, passing through the City of Dolls (Ningyocho). Do some shopping, learn about Japanese tea ceremonies, take a course in Ikebana or contemplate the far-out designs of Metabolist architecture. Anything is possible in the immense capital of Japan. The school will also give you ideas and advice on what to do and see: climbing trails on Mount Fuji, water sports in summer and hiking, ice-skating, skiing and snowboarding in legendary Japanese powder snow in the winter.
