Information on enrolling in public high school


Kindergartens, daycare centers and schools are often listed in prefectural or city websites. Often “how to enrol” guidebooks or information are also given in these living guides.

A very useful and general Education Guide has been prepared by the Council for Local Authorities for International Relations, go to this page

For example, see the Kanagawa Prefecture “Public High School Enrollment Guidebook” printable at this  PDF link.

Where online information is not available, go directly to your local ward/city office kuyakusho or shiyakusho as the case may be) and obtain the kindergarten / school list or information.
