Fukuoka is an ideal city for a home stay: the city is safe, compact and convenient. Japanese families from Fukuoka are very friendly and hospitable. Most of them are experienced in caring for foreign language students.
Our host families’ homes are all located near the city center or in nearby suburbs, no more than 45 minutes away from the school by public transport. Sometimes, it is even possible to walk or ride a bicycle. Living with a Japanese host family provides a great opportunity to use your Japanese language skills in daily conversations and to practice what you have learnt in your lessons. Enjoy the comfort of a private household and experience Japanese daily life and culture. Furthermore, it is a special opportunity to get to know Japanese people, culture and the typical cuisine in a familial environment. You do not have to worry about your Japanese skill level. Even students without any previous Japanese knowledge easily get along very well with our friendly host families.
