Nishimachi International School
Nishimachi International School established in 1949, is a co-educational, non-sectarian, private K-9 day school located in the Azabu area of Tokyo, Japan. The main language of instruction is in English. Japanese is taught to all students every day from beginner to native speaker level.
The campus is located in central Tokyo and comprises six buildings: the Matsukata House, the Ushiba Memorial gymnasium/auditorium, the kindergarten building in the nearby Moto Azabu Hills complex, the primary building housing grades 1-2, the upper elementary/middle school building housing grades 3-9, and the Yashiro Media Center. Matsukata House was the original family residence of Nishimachi’s founder, Tane Matsukata, and now serves as the school’s main administrative building. The Yashiro Media Center, housed in its own three-floor building, contains about 18,000 volumes, 70% in English and 30% in Japanese. Nishimachi’s outdoor education center, Camp Rioichiro Arai “Kazuno,” is in Gunma Prefecture, 150 kilometers northwest of Tokyo.
