Aiwa Language Institute owns student accommodations so that students can enjoy studying Japanese without any worry or anxiety.
Our accommodations are divided into Apartment Type and Dormitory Type.
The Apartment Type is the same as other typical apartments in Japan. The Dormitory Type has two separate buildings, for male students and female students. There are shared washing machines and shower rooms in the dormitory buildings. Each room in our accommodations (both types) is equipped with refrigerator, chair, desk, air conditioner, curtain, electricity, gas stove, etc. that students can use freely. Students have to clean their rooms by themselves. However, if any of those machines or equipment in the room break down or have some problems, students can contact the school. Then, the school staff immediately respond to cope with any of those troubles or problems.
It takes only 5 to 10 minutes by bicycle from any of those student accommodations to Aiwa Language Institute.
For Muslim students, there are Masjid and Halal food shops/restaurants nearby. There are also supermarkets and groceries near the accommodations, so it is very convenient for all the students.
