A town where children from all around the world can run about

We chose Jinseki Kogen as a fitting environment for cultivating the five senses of children.

Jinseki Kogen is nestled in the Chugoku Mountains, the setting of many Japanese myths, and is surrounded by rich nature. Children can experience the beautiful waterfalls, rivers, and mountainous scenery throughout the four seasons.

Jinseki International School is designing a 24-hour learning environment for children in the form of a boarding school that provides primary education, and which will serve as the foundation of their schooling.

Young children who have gathered from all over the world will experience stress-free learning while closely interacting with adults as well. This environment will also cultivate their communication skills and consideration for others.
