A View of the City and Nature from the Window
Shibaura Canal, Boats, and Trains

With a wonderful view from the windows, students are always excited to see the boats and trains passing by. The cherry blossoms blooming on the other side of the canal in spring, the sounds of rain falling on the canal in summer, the colorful leaves in fall, and the snow in winter, this campus allows you to feel the nature while being surrounded by the city.


< Small Class Size> Attentive Education with Suitable Facilities

Shibaura campus is the smallest of A-JB's campuses. The small class sizes allow more intensive language acquisition and inquiry-based learning. The classrooms are independent but made with an open structure, so you can feel the energy of the students, making the campus a happy place. The walls dividing the classrooms can also be removed, to hold events in a larger space.

芝浦公園 街並み

Remarkable Development Area
Well-maintained Parks and Roads

The nearest station is the JR Tamachi Station, but the new Takanawa Gateway Station is also nearby. Redevelopment is active throughout the area, changing day by day. Parks and sidewalks are well maintained, and we can take safe routes to parks nearby.

After School Program
and School Bus

We offer After School Programs such as dance, ESL, programming, and gymnastics. The program supports student's curiosity and the desire to learn, also making their daily exploration and life more fulfilling. All programs are very popular, with some classes having waiting lists.

The school bus service is available covering a wide area of Minato-ku. Bus routes change each year according to registrations, like some fun routes going around Roppongi where you can look up at the Tokyo Tower, going around Zojoji Temple, or crossing the Rainbow Bridge.

Principal’s Message

Konami Tagami
Acting Principal

Konami Tagami


Of all the A-JB campuses, the Shibaura Campus is the smallest and the most intimate. We operate the school in a way that is close to each child's individuality in their daily school life so that they can develop an ability to express themselves, one of the characteristics of the International Baccalaureate (IB) education.. We provide childcare in an environment where we can pay close attention to each child and help them develop their strengths. The main methods of expressing themselves include expressing their thoughts through art and bilingual (English and Japanese) show-and-tell in front of others, which are performed on a daily basis in the school. Through these activities, children learn about themselves and about what kind of play they like. They experience the differences in their personalities, accept each other, and gain a variety of experiences that can only be had at the school. Through these experiences, the children have a high sense of self-esteem and are more confident in themselves while they explore their own inquiry themselves , and together with their friends and their teachers. We are very much looking forward to the children's growth in the future.
