Living environment

To promote Tochigi Prefecture as a comfortable and livable place for Japanese and foreign residents alike, a variety of resources and services have been made available. With the cooperation of the Tochigi International Association, the Tochigi Prefecture government has established an array of assistance measures, such as providing helpful information in multiple languages on websites and through cellular phone mail notifications, as well as offering consultation services aimed at foreign residents.

International schools

While there are no international schools in Tochigi Prefecture, the board of education oversees a total of 40 elementary, junior high and senior high schools which have been designated as “foreign student base schools”. These schools offer special language instruction for students experiencing difficulties in Japanese in order to enhance their communicative abilities.

Health services catering to foreigners
