Insurance premiums for 1 year cost 4,000yen; for 2 years, 9,000yen. Students interested should bring a contract or an application for tenancy issued by landlord to the International Student Affairs Office. The office will issue an application and payment slip of Insurance premiums. As soon as the payment has been made, please submit all necessary documents with Professor’s confirmation. Processing time is approximately 7 days after the submission. If you plan to continue living in your apartment and past your insurance’s expiration date, you must renew your insurance and pay another premium. Please, be aware that if you do not renew your insurance, the International Student Support Association will no longer serve as your guarantor.
