Education Trip and School Exchanges
Local Network Service encourages student exchanges to enhance mutual international understandings for the youth.  We believe the world can be more peaceful, hand in hand, by assisting more opportunities to see and talk and know people from abroad.

We receive around 70 schools from outside Japan every year, mostly from China and Taiwan, sporadically from Singapore, Thai, the States, and Australia.  As we work connected with local governments, tourism bureaus, and schools, we have the regular flow for accepting the request of arrangement.  Please follow the steps below for application.

1  Application Form
Application Form is for us to know when the school wants to visit our school, How many students are coming, Why they are visiting us, and What they want to do with our students so we can choose the proper school and proper classes for them.  To make Japanese friends, to experience Japanese classes, to experience Japanese culture, to study the education system of Japan, whatever the reasons are, we try to coordinate it with our local education board.

2  Itinerary
The itinerary also helps us to see which region of our state is best for the tour group to avoid the waste of transportation time.  At the same time, we can advise you more efficient and profitable way of courses.

3  Name List
We request you the Name List for the following reason.  1  To see the ages and grades of the students  2  To know the ratio of boys and girls  3  To make buddies and groups.  4 To check students’ allergies and also for schools as an informaton.
