Alumni Visit

Whether it's been a few months or three decades since you were last on campus, we love it when our alumni and former faculty visit.

We are happy to offer you a campus tour Monday - Friday between the hours of 8am and 4:30pm when school is in session.

For security reasons, please contact alumni@asij.ac.jp to schedule a visit.

Due to construction, maintenance and additional campus programs, visits during ASIJ’s  summer, spring, and winter holidays may be restricted. Please contact the Alumni Office in advance if you would like to visit during these times to find out of a visit is possible. While we do our best to accommodate all requests, please note that even with advance notice, it may not be possible to visit during these holidays.

Alumni are also welcome to attend our annual campus events such as Spirit Day and Winterfest—no prior registration is required for these events. Also, every year we have several alumni who visit campus to speak to students or parents individually or as part of alumni panel discussions. This is a great opportunity for ASIJ students to interact and learn from our alumni. Please let us know if you would be available to speak to students while you are in Japan.

College Rep Visits

ASIJ welcomes visits from college reps and in a typical year our students meet over 200 college admission officers.

Some come as individuals, others in small groups, and others as a part of a CIS or Linden fair. Many come each year to be part of the Kanto Plain College fair. More detailed information can be found on our high school counseling website.

Please use RepVisits to schedule your visit. If you do not use RepVisits, please contact Sheri Neal the high school counselor who coordinates our college visits.

Other Visitors

Please contact the member of staff you wish to meet ahead of time to schedule your appointment.

Photos and Video Policy

When taking photos of children on campus please be respectful and ensure that photos are appropriate and used in a responsible way. Please avoid taking photos of other people’s children in a one-on-one setting where others are not present. When sharing photos on social media, be mindful of what you are sharing. If the photo features someone else’s child, consider whether they will approve of your post. Consider cultural, religious, and other beliefs, as well as how other people may view the photo/video you take. Official school photographers from ASIJ or visiting schools often take photos at events on campus. These photos may appear in publications, on social media and in marketing materials produced by ASIJ or a visiting school.
