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.
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.

Moronaga-sensei always encouraged me to push myself harder, was always extremely helpful with any questions, and always made class enjoyable.
