Homevisit Program

Improve your Japanese via a homestay. If you would prefer to live in Yamasa's student accommodation, or if you applied too late or for some other reason were unable to obtain a homestay, then it is also possible to visit a Japanese family for a short duration homevisit. Homevisits do not need to be applied for in advance - you can apply for a homevisit after you reach Okazaki simply by going to the Student Services office on the ground floor of the Yamasa II building after you finish your enrolment, or at any stage during your studies.

Length of Homevisit: Usually students stay for an afternoon and evening meal, or stay for a weekend (1 night/2 days).

Requirements: You need to visit the Housing Office and talk with the Housing Coordinator to determine availability.

Homevisit fees: Homevisits are usually free as the families participate as volunteers. You may need to pay your own transportation. It is also advised that you take along with you a small gift. Something from your own country is usually best.

Notification: As soon as your host family is determined, the Housing Coordinator will notify you.

Basic Rules: As with the homestay there are rules. Please remember that the family is receiving you as a guest and so good manners and a preparedness to participate in family activities is appropriate.

Enjoy your stay with a Japanese Family!
