Travel Info

ASIj is able to help your book accommodation in areas that are easy commutes to the school via train. Please plan to commute via the train system as taxis can be prohibitively expensive.

Areas that you should book hotels in are Shinjuku, Kichijogi and Musashisakie.

Escort to school from Musashisakai or Tama stations can be arranged.
Please note that some hotels in Japan charge per PERSON.

Please bring signed Participant Release Forms for all team members (students and adult mentors) to team check-in/registration.
