Continuing Evening and Weekend Programs

Cross Tracks is Cross Education’s line of continuing education programs that are delivered each week and continue all year round. These programs offer learning opportunities in technology, culture, English and Japanese language and culture, performance arts, sports, and more.

For International students, Cross Tracks offers the Japanese Language and Culture Program for international students. All other Cross Tracks Programs are delivered in English. One of the major learning objectives is to help both native and non-native English speakers improve their ability to communicate in applied learning contexts. All Cross instructors are professionals in their particular fields, as well as trained language specialists.

Cross Tracks & the Ichibancho Cross Education Learning Center

Located in the heart of Tokyo, the Cross Learning Center is in one of the oldest and most respected parts of the city called Ichibancho. Ichibanchō is an upscale residential district of Chiyoda, Tokyo, Japan. The district is located just east of Tokyo Imperial Palace, and is home to the British Embassy and Paraguayan Embassy. We are located only minutes walk from 4 subway stations (Hanzomon, Ichigaya, Kojimachi, and Yotsuya, 4 of Tokyo’s Metro lines (the Shinjuku Line, the Marunouchi Line, the Hanzomon Line, & the Yurakucho Line), and the JR Chuo and Sobu Lines. The Cross Learning Center is surrounded by some of Tokyo’s most respected schools, including Sophia University, Bancho Elementary School, Futaba High School, & Chiyoda International School, among others. The 2020 Tokyo Olympic Stadium is 3 kilometers in one direction, and the center of Japanese government only 1 kilometer in the other direction.

Our head office is located at the Cross Education Learning Center, as is our newest line of programs that begins in the Fall of 2019: Cross Tracks.
