Yokohama International School is located in the heart of the historic foreign residential section of Yokohama, high on a bluff opposite Harbor View Park, overlooking the bustle of Japan’s second largest port city. Some of Yokohama's most popular neighborhoods for foreign residents are within walking distance or a short car ride, and there is convenient access to public buses, subways and excellent train service for which Japan is known. Two major train/subway lines provide reliable and convenient access to YIS from all areas of Yokohama and elsewhere in Kanagawa Prefecture and Tokyo. The Motomachi Chukagai Station of the Minato Mirai Line, a 5-minute walk from the school, connects with Shibuya in the heart of Tokyo in less than 35 minutes via Limited Express.

Please note that we do not provide a school bus service.
