About Our Location

The school is located in the attractive Osaka suburb of Minoh, which is nestled in the foothills of the Minoh National Park.

Our children ride their bikes to school safely and there are plenty of parks and green spaces in the area.

However, there are also many shops, cafes, restaurants, supermarkets and other amenities close by. Minoh and the surrounding suburbs give expatriates a true Japanese experience because of the vibrancy of the area. It is a good mix of western and traditional Japanese culture. Osaka University is very close and therefore, many businesses cater to foreigners. Train stations are a short bus ride or walk away from the school, and it takes about 30 minutes to be in downtown Umeda. It is a short 20-minute drive or monorail ride to Itami Airport, and a similar distance to Shin-Osaka station where shinkansen bullet trains can whisk you away to Kyoto in 20 minutes, Kobe in 25 minutes, or Tokyo in 2.5 hours.
