PreK-Grade 12 International Day and Boarding School in Kobe, Japan | Since 1913


Canadian Academy offers bus services, safely bringing your child to a world-class education. It’s well worth the trip!

Parents understand that the best school for their family is not always the one just around the corner. For your convenience, two routes - Ashiya and Rokko - are offered, with the Ashiya route running towards Osaka, and the Rokko route heading to Sannomiya, downtown Kobe, with multiple stops along the way. 

Prices for round-trip commitments reflect a small discount over one-way transportation. The cost of this service also varies according to distance traveled. In addition, a 25% discount is provided to second and third children in the same family. These discounts are reflected in the registration form below. 

Registration represents a school year or semester-long commitment and are refundable on the same basis as tuition fees. In the event that no seats are available, Canadian Academy reserves the right to prioritize who is served.

If you have comments or suggestions regarding this service please contact the bus coordinator Yuko Hosoda or call the office at 078 857 0100.
