Canadian Academy is located on Rokko Island, a unique man-made island made from reclaimed land.  It is a planned community surrounded by a busy port, connected to the JR and Hanshin train lines via the Rokkoliner.  With a beautiful five kilometer loop that snakes around the residential part of the island, the 'green belt' is a great place for a morning run or an evening stroll.  Rokko Island is a safe, family-friendly location that many foreigners and Japanese call their home, as a convenient, quiet place, close to the bustle of downtown Kobe (20 minutes) and Osaka (37 minutes).  There are restaurants, shops, grocery stores. foreign specialty shops and a hospital all within a ten minute walk. From Rokko Island's Kobe Bay Sheraton, Kansai International Airport can be reached by bus within one hour.

Please visit the Rokko Island site for information on our school's immediate environment. To learn more about the city of Kobe, visit Kobe City's home pages.
