10th Anniversary Campaign

Student Group Opens Store in Local Mall

KARUCHA, a second-hand kimono and accessory shop managed by ISAK students, officially opened this weekend at Karuizawa Prince Shopping Plaza! Congratulations to the students who have been working for many months to turn their concept for a second-hand kimono shop into a reality. The KARUCHA team has been collaborating with Mr. Nakamura (CEO of Tokyo Yamaki Tansu-ya) for business advice, but most aspects of the shop, including management, advertisement, and display, have been directed solely by the students.

For the grand opening this past weekend, several ISAK students and faculty stopped by to show their support, try on kimonos, and purchase some of the beautiful goods. KARUCHA will be open from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm. During the school day, the shop will be staffed by staff from an adjacent shop, but KARUCHA members plan to go directly after class each day to work different shifts!

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.
