*Note 1: The International Student Fee applies to those students who travel to Japan from overseas in order to attend the Academy program. This fee does not apply to students 5 years old to 11 years old who must travel to Japan with their families and will not require supervision or accommodations. Children 12 years old and up are also exempt from this fee should their parents be accompanying them during their stay in Japan. The International Student Fee only applies to those children, 12 years and older, who are traveling to Japan alone and require guardianship services.
*Note 2: International students will be placed in homestay accommodation upon arrival in Japan. During those weeks designated as “daytime” (weeks 1, 2, and 6) they will stay together with their homestay families or in the Academy dormitory. During those weeks designated as “overnight” they will stay in the offsite academy accommodations together with all of the academy participants.
