Welcome to Hakuba International School Foundation Project

Let curiosity be your guide

Situated in the spectacular natural environment of Northern Japan Alps, Hakuba is an open-space classroom and playground for every curious mind. We aim to establish a world-class educational institution with boarding facilities in this beautiful valley; catering to students aged 12 to 18 and providing the education focused on sustainability with a Project Based Learning approach and an International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme.  In addition to striving for academic excellence, we will also take full advantage of our amazing location by focusing on well-balanced development of body, mind and spirit. We plan to open our doors to the inaugural class in 2022.  


In the meantime, please come and join our holiday programmes and experience what it’s like to learn in Hakuba!

Our vision is to inspire and support students during the early stages of their learning journey; encouraging them to become motivated, life-long learners. By providing quality educational experiences, they will develop into responsible, confident, young adults who want to make a difference in our world.
