Arriving Early

If you are planning to arrive early, please inform KCP-Japan the arrival flight information and where you will be staying at / contact number to reach you in Japan no later than a month before program start. It is your responsibility to make travel arrangements to and from Japan. The program fee does not include personal expenses or airfare. If you cannot arrive on the scheduled airport pickup date, you are responsible for arranging your own local transportation and accommodation until the program begins. Please discuss with the student coordinator well in advance and make arrangements for a smooth check-in at the school arranged housing on the program arrival day. Unless previous arrangements have been made, it is your responsibility to be at KCP International Japanese Language School in time for the day’s ceremony, Japanese placement test, and interviews.

For program date information, please see Schedule on the KCP main website. If you plan to arrive early, consult your travel agency to arrange accommodations. Your program coordinator does not have the resources to pick up students at the airport before the scheduled arrival date or on an individual basis. If you have never traveled to Tokyo or Japan before and are uncomfortable with your survival Japanese, KCP highly recommends that you make every effort to arrive on the program start date.
