February 6: Lunch Tour in Kagurazaka
Would you like to have lunch in Kagurazaka together with Coto staff and students?

We (Coto Staff) would like to get to know you more!

We have hand-selected a nice traditional restaurant in the historic Kagurazaka district which is just over the bridge from Coto.

While walking to the restaurant, the staff will introduce you to the history of Kagurazaka, which has had a flourishing geisha culture since 1600, and will also show you wonderful shops in Kagurazaka. 

This is a great opportunity to get to know the area near the school! You can even take your friends and family there if they visit.

Join us and make friends with others in your class - we really hope you can join us!

Have you ever seen Daruma?

The Daruma is a traditional Japanese doll, which in Japan has become a symbol of perseverance and luck.

The process of using a Daruma doll is simple:

2. Paint in one eye.
3. Work for it everyday.
4. When the dream is achieved, paint in the other eye.
