Kindergarten in Kobe

I am not sure if this forum would be helpful on this topic, but I am giving this a try because I noticed some expats responding.

My family is moving to Kobe for 5 months. We would like our 4-year old son to attend kindergarten. Is it possible to attend Japanese public school for the short-term? I have looked at the international schools in the area, and they do not offer the curriculum that we are interested in (Japanese language). Any advice would be helpful.

Interesting question. Kobe is a beautiful city, you will appreciate your time there!

Kindergarten is not part of the public school in Japan. They are privately run.

A good source of information about living in Hyogo Prefecture is the Hyogo International Association: http://www.hyogo-ip.or.jp/en/index.htm

Their offices are in Kobe and they are very helpful. You should ask them for information.
