Learning in a Nature-rich Environment
with a 5-minute Walk to Rinshinomori Park

The campus, located in a quiet residential area, is a luxurious space with a yard and a large balcony, where students can freely engage in activities. The children spend their days experiencing nature with all their senses, such as going to the park even when it rains a little, as it is a 5-minute walk to Rintsunomori Park.


“A Second Home"
Flexible Space and Carefully Selected Materials

Students grow day by day, as their imaginative minds keep extending and developing. In order to accommodate such growth, the walls are flexile to draw on and there are no ceiling boards above. The entire space is designed as an installation (an artistic genre that allows students to experience the space as a place of expression and exhibition by composing the space according to their thoughts and intentions), allowing students to explore and be inspired with creativity. The entire building is built with Marmoleum material, which is anti-allergic and anti-viral, combined with the warmth of wood, all in gentle colors. Another major feature of the campus is the artificial grass yard, comfortable in bare feet, and the spacious balcony, where students can freely engage in indoor and outdoor activities.

IB x STEAM Education

STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art/Design, and Mathematics. In this continuously changing world, we incorporate learning opportunities through STEAM into our daily zone playing and PYP curriculum, in order to foster the ability of "Monozukuri" and problem-solving skills that create new changes itself.

We also use three-dimensional toys to enhance thinking skills. Especially in early years, using three-dimensional objects has the effect of deepening students’ understanding of shapes and spatial awareness, as well as numbers and logical thinking.

After School Program
and School Bus

We offer a wide variety of After School Programs including gymnastics, karate, ballet, street dance, programming, and Koguma-kai (basic exam class for elementary school entry). Even those families who don’t have time to take their children to extracurricular lessons, can rest assured that their children have these experiences that expand their interests, during regular school days.

The school bus service is available covering Meguro-ku, as well as Mita, Shirokane-Takanawa, Azabu-Juban and Roppongi areas in Minato-ku, the Daikanyama/Sarugaku, Ebisu and Hiroo areas in Shibuya-ku, and the Osaki area in Shinagawa-ku. Many families use the morning bus to come to school, and also the bus in the evening, which leaves the campus when the after school program ends at 5:30pm.

*Programming and Koguma-kai are eligible from K4 (4 years old and above).
