I very much liked the location of my dorm in Nishi-Tokyo. Although commuting everyday was a bit troublesome the towns quiet environment was a nice escape after going to school in a area like Shinjuku. The staff of the dorm where very freindly and food offered varied from traditional Japanese breakfast to western style dinners.

KCP is a really great program and I would highly recommend it to anyone thinking about studying Japanese in Tokyo. Although intense the sense of achievement by the end of just two and a half months is huge.
