Au pays des sakuras

Created in 2004, “Au Pays des Sakuras” is a French-speaking kindergarten for children aged 2 to 4, or who are waiting for a place in kindergarten at the Lycée Français International de Tokyo.

Since 2008, our structure has a status of “ippan shadan hojin”, a legal existence recognised by the Japanese authorities.

“Au Pays des Sakuras” is aimed at all families – French-speaking or not – who want their child to develop in a French-speaking environment. The kindergarten works like a “nursery school”: four days a week, the children are welcomed by a team of professionals for activities such as language and song workshops, motor activities, manual activities, and of course… meals, naps and playtime! Everyone’s rhythm is respected.
