For many expats moving to Japan, finding a good international school is an essential part of relocating, allowing expat children to learn a familiar curriculum in their home language. There are a few international schools for expats in and around Osaka, though Tokyo has a much larger selection available. Some of the most popular curricula are those of the UK, the US and the globally respected International Baccalaureate. Other countries such as Germany, France and India also have schools in the greater Kyoto-Osaka-Kobe area.
