Visit Us

We encourage prospective families to visit the campus when possible. However, in light of the fluctuating public health situation in Japan related to COVID-19, we have modified our usual practices for campus visits and school tours, as indicated below.

All visits to the school and tours of the school require an appointment. Visitors from outside the school community should contact the Main Reception Desk at yis@yis.ac.jp  to make an appointment to visit the school.

For tours of the school, use the Book a Campus Tour button below to provide our Admissions Office with some background information such as the grade level(s) you are interested in, the year of birth of the child(ren) you are interested in applying for, and the school or country your child(ren) is/are currently in and your desired date of enrollment in the school to allow us to cater your virtual visit more appropriately.

Admissions tours may be conducted in-person if the state of the public health situation in Japan allows us to conduct them safely, or online to allow us to maintain health and safety precautions. Online tours are also offered for prospective families residing outside Japan or for those residing in Japan who cannot attend in person. Tours are offered according to the schedule below when school is in session. During summer holidays, school tours are not provided according to a regular schedule. Tours may be available during the summer holidays when circumstances and staffing allow.
