International Exchange Community Operated by an International School
Yokohama is home to many foreign residents, however, due to language and cultural barriers, these families from overseas often end up in small, limited communities. Yet there are many Japanese families who want to interact with and support foreign families.
This community uses to advantage its connection to an international school, providing not just a place to interact, but a place to exchange information specific to the community, on subjects including international education, childcare, child-rearing, etc.
