Live in comfort from Day One! We provide you with a fully equipped dormitory.
Here at Syonan Japanese Academy Hamamatsu Campus, we confirm whether a student needs a dormitory as soon as his/her official enrollment is completed. The required accommodation will be prepared before student’s arrival to Japan. The dormitory is fully equipped with WI-FI, air conditioning, refrigerator, Futon, electric rice cooker, lighting equipment, etc. A bicycle is also prepared for your daily needs. The school staff will provide the best support to our students so that they can have a comfortable living environment right from the first day in Japan.
We support your legal paperwork needed to live in Japan.
It is required to submit resident registration at city hall or ward office nearby quickly after entering Japan. Application for national health insurance and for national pension exemption has to be completed promptly.
In Japan, medical expense for international student’s illness or injury can be very expensive without proper health insurance. Our students are obligated to join the National Health Insurance to protect themselves.

International students can open a bank account in Japan as soon as the residence registration is completed. It is required to bring your Alien Registration Card and personal seal (Inkan or Hanko). Your bank card, called Cash Card in Japan, is also issued when your account is established.After completing the registration procedure, the Cash Card will be mailed to your address in about 2 weeks. At our school, students will be instructed to open a bank account at Hamamatsu Iwata Shinkin.
