Entering Japan / Visa
Applicants who require a visa to participate in this program must obtain a "Temporary Visitor" visa.
“Student Visas” will not be issued to participants in the JLC Program. Senshu University cannot assume responsibility for visa extensions, so students should be careful about which day they enter/leave Japan.
Senshu University will send each applicant a "Letter of Acceptance" and other documents upon confirming that the total program costs have been paid. Students who require a visa to enter Japan will need this document in order to proceed with the application process. In order to proceed, applicants must appear in person at the nearest Japanese Embassy or Consulate and present their passport as well as the appropriate application forms and other necessary documents. Because obtaining a visa may take time, it is recommended that preparations be started early and that prompt attention be given to all application procedures. For more details, you should address your inquiries to the Japanese Embassy or Consulate in your country.
The nearest train station to the dormitory is Mukogaoka-yuen station on the Odakyu line. The dormitory is a 14-minute walk away from the south exit of the station. Students carrying luggage are advised to take a taxi from either the north or south exit of Mukogaoka-yuen station to the dormitory considering that the dormitory is located on top of a hill. A taxi from the station costs approximately ¥1,000 JPN-yen and takes 10 minutes.
The Senshu University International Academic Affairs Office is happy to provide students with any assistance upon request, so please let us know if any is required.
