Lodging & Arrivals - Fukuoka, Japan  



The opportunity to stay with a Japanese host family is the perfect way to immerse yourself in the culture, and practice at "home" what you learned at school that day.

When arranging a host family for you, we try to take into account any needs or preferences you may have, such as smoker or non-smoker, allergies, English ability, and so on. Your host family can act as guides and mentors, friends and companions, and a wonderful resource in your adventure in Japan. They are likely to be the people you become closest to during your stay, which is why we perform a thorough screening of all host family applicants, to ensure that they can provide a suitable environment to assist your learning and to allow you to fully experience Japan.

Host families are chosen to be as close to the school, and the center of Fukuoka City, as possible. All host families are within one hour traveling time of the school by public transport. You are guaranteed to have your own private room, which may be either Japanese or Western style.


A private room in a dormitory with other students and Japanese university students gives students the freedom to enjoy the city life without a curfew, but also the chance to make lots of friends. We offer 5 different dorms, each with different strengths and weaknesses. All dorms have private rooms, but shared facilities (kitchen, toilet, shower, etc.). Breakfast and dinner are available for an additional cost.

Shared Apartment
Staying with other people in the city gives students the opportunity to make friends easily, and go out freely, but still have a good level of privacy and freedom. In a shared apartment, students have their own private room, but share the central facilities, such as laundry, kitchen, living room, bathroom. Apartments are generally owned by a Japanese person. Most of these apartments are quite close to the center of the city.

Lodging information is sent 7 - 14 days prior to departure. Information of where to go and how to get there will be sent to students prior to departure. In addition, NRCSA will send emergency contact in case of any problem.
