Taiken Nyugaku Iraisho

posted May 28, 2021, 8:13 AM by Hiromi Takahashi

If your child will experience school in Japan and need a Taiken Nyugaku Iraisho (written request), please submit an Iraisho Hakkonegai (application form) to the school office. It usually takes one week to prepare the Taiken Nyugaku Iraisho, please be sure to submit your Iraisho Hakkonegai ahead of time. If you wish your child’s missing school days not to be counted towards the absent limit, please obtain Taiken Nyugaku Shomeisho (certificate of enrollment) from the school your child will be attending and submit it to our school office. The Saturday before and/or after the Taiken Nyugaku may not be considered an absence if it is spent traveling to/from Japan. For questions, please contact the school office.
