10th Anniversary Campaign

Japanese Culture in the ISAK Experience

This is a question that prospective parents and students from abroad often ask us.At ISAK, students will not only take Japanese language and culture classes, but also have a chance to be exposed to the heart and character of Japanese people by engaging with the local community of Karuizawa.

At the Olympic Committee Session earlier this month, a famous part of the final presentation by Tokyo – which was selected as the site for the 2020 Games – was the phrase, “Omotenashi.” It means “to be wholeheartedly kind, welcoming, and thoughtful toward visitors for their sake, and to do so without expecting anything in return.” A concept with deep roots in Japanese culture since our ancestors’ generations, it expresses the devoted spirit with which Japan welcomes its visitors.

During their three years at ISAK, students from abroad will have excellent opportunities to experience the warm and elegantly modest character of the people of Japan.

Imagine… if there was an ISAK lower school!

Dear Friends of UWC ISAK,

UWC ISAK is celebrating its 10th anniversary! We are proud of where we’ve come from, and we are excited about the next decade.

At this important milestone, we are wondering – in pursuit of broadening our impact, could an ISAK Lower School be considered as one of the options and would it be feasible? A school that embraces ISAK values and vision for a better future?

As we embark on this journey, if you would like to participate in possible market research and receive updates, please subscribe to our mailing list.
