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 bus, subway and train service. 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.


Getting to YIS

Japan is known for its excellent public transportation system. 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 school is accessible from Motomachi Chukagai Station on the Minato Mirai Subway Line (which runs as the Tokyu Toyoko Line to the north of Yokohama Station) and from Yamate , Sakuragicho and Ishikawacho stations on the JR Negishi Line (which runs as the Keihin Tohoku Line to the north of Yokohama Station). Use the Google area map to find directions from your location or see the directions from nearby stations on the right.
