Campus

A quiet neighborhood in otherwise-busy Shinjuku.

japanese cultural immersion in the heart of tokyo

The KCP campus is a five-minute walk from the Shinjuku Gyoenmae subway station (Marunouchi line), or a 10-minute walk from Shinjuku San-Chome station (Toei Shinjuku line)—an ideal location for your study abroad program in Tokyo.

Shinjuku is the business, entertainment, and shopping center of Tokyo. Shinjuku Avenue is lined with tall buildings, complexes, and a feast of exotic neon light displays. The KCP neighborhood, however, is filled with smaller buildings and shops.

Shinjuku Gyoen Park: a favorite spot

Shinjuku Gyoen Park, one of Tokyo’s largest and most beautiful, is only a five-minute walk from KCP. At a number of smaller parks close by, students can enjoy a peaceful break as well. It’s a perfect spot to immerse yourself in Japanese daily life.

KCP Office

Offices are open 9 am–6 pm Monday through Friday. Morning classes start at 9 am; afternoon classes end at 4:45 pm. Campus amenities include a main office, classrooms, a study room, student lounges, a computer room (word processing in English and Japanese, a printer, and internet access), and a sick room.

Testimonials

If you want a challenge, then this program in definitely what you’re looking for. I came into the program with very basic knowledge of Japanese and am definitely excited about how much I have improved. Learning a language isn’t instant and it takes a while to sink in, but the longer you’re here you become more motivated to utilize what you learn and to continue to progress in your studies. And all of the instructors and office staff are some of the most friendly and approachable people I have ever met. They really make the whole experience quite enjoyable!
