I love your blog. There’s so much great information here. I’ve been trying to find out what the most expensive school in Japan is (to compare it to other countries…); do you happen to know?
Check the private school directory listing. I think the most expensive one would have to be the top three private schools, including the Etonian copycat boy’s boarding school.
