Konan University reopens its doors to international students, following the announcement of the relaxation of COVID-19 border controls from March 1, 2022 by the Japanese government. We happily announce that we are currently preparing for "Summer Intensive Japanese Program” and “Year-in-Japan Program 2022/23” to welcome you to Kobe. For the detailed information, please contact Study Abroad Program Office at your home university.
Konan, founded in 1919, is a well-known private non-denominational university of roughly 10,000 students. We are located in a trendy neighborhood of Kobe, a sophisticated city which is home to over 1.5 million people. With its flourishing port, Kobe has long been influenced by foreign cultures and has a rich history of international exchange. It is sometimes referred to as Japan's San Francisco" due to its coastal hills and ocean vistas, as well as its unique and fashionable atmosphere. Our city is particularly renowned for its delicious bakeries and sweets, top-quality beef, and Japanese sake breweries.
Kobe is conveniently located near Osaka, Japan's second largest city and bustling gastronomic capital, and Kyoto, the preeminent heart of Japanese culture and tradition. It's also close to the spiritual sites and sacred groves of Nara as well as to Japan's best preserved feudal castle in Himeji. Together, these cities comprise the heart of Kansai, western Japan's largest urban and economic region. So, if you want to thoroughly experience everything that traditional and modern Japan has to offer, come join us at Konan in Kobe!
