About Furusato Nozei

Donations through the Furusato Nozei (hometown tax) program covers over 40% of our total operational costs, allowing us to support over 100 students in 2018.

How Does Furusato Nozei (hometown tax) Work?

The Furusato Nozei system allows taxpayers in Japan to pay a portion of their national and local income tax and residential tax payments to a specific municipal government. In return, donors are exempted from a portion of their income and resident taxes.

Our local town of Karuizawa has generously offered to let donors select UWC ISAK Japan as a hometown tax recipient, with 95% of the amount of each donation going to UWC ISAK Japan, and the remaining 5% contributed to local educational activities.

To utilize this system, donors must submit an application to Karuizawa Town in advance; please note that the deadline for applications is Dec. 31 for the fiscal year ending the following March. If you have questions about donating to UWC ISAK Japan through Furusato Nozei please email us:

Student Profile: A Phoenix Rises

SOGO, Class of 2020, Japan
“When the Great East Japan Earthquake hit in 2011, I was just an elementary student. My grandparents lived in one of the most impacted areas. Before my eyes, my world changed in an instant. Since then, I’ve received an incredible amount of support and today, here I am, at UWC ISAK Japan. I cannot thank enough those who support the financial aid program. This school has changed my life and motivated me to continually show my appreciation through my actions.”

Maria, Class of 2019, Venezuela
“Growing up in Venezuela, everything I knew was from government propaganda. There is no freedom of speech nor transparency in my country. I am so thankful for being able to come to UWC ISAK Japan with a full scholarship. Here at UWC ISAK, I’ve learned to see my country from a more objective point of view and have gained a spirit and understanding that I can always make a change in my own life at any moment if I put my mind to it.”
