Our more than 2,500 graduates have gone on to do welfare work in various places — we have built relationships of trust with these many facilities. We have developed systems to ensure students’ peace of mind as they focus on their practical training, including working closely with facilities both before and after students’ practical training, and having our full-time instructors visit students during their practical training.

We also offer excellent instruction and support for finding employment after graduation: for the past three years, 100% of our graduates desiring employment have successfully found employment!

We are also conveniently located near great sightseeing destinations like Kanazawa Castle and Kenrokuen Garden, which is considered one of the three finest gardens in Japan. Alongside their studies, students can enjoy the traditional culture and seasonal delights of Kanazawa!
