Life in Osaka

The school dormitory is located right next to Nipponbashi, a very lively and convenient area. Our school is located in the city center, and is close to train stations; there are 3 subway lines, 2 private railways, and the JR line that connects all of Japan. North of the school and 10 minutes away by foot is Umeda and the JR Osaka Station. Located 30 minutes away by subway is a big shopping mall, municipal facilities, leading IT facilities, and more. During the weekends, students can head South of the city and visit the Osaka Aquarium and the surrounding shopping malls, or take the subway for 20 minutes and go downtown, visit the Osaka Castle, and the Osaka Business Park.
