Safety Measures for Japan Switch Reopening
Updated on January 08, 2021.
■ Japanese Government Announcement
Update : 01/08/2020
The government made a public announcement this evening. Their announcement requested that restaurants and drinking establishments close by 8 PM. They did not make any mandates for schools and we have made the decision to remain open until further notice from the government.
Please note we will be open as normal tomorrow, Friday the 8th. We hope to see you then and please take care.
■ School Measures

➡ This is a temporary measure until the complete reopening of Tokyo
② We will sterilize the classrooms tables and door knobs during the intermission between classes
③ We will leave the entrance and windows open to ensure proper ventilation. On chilly days, please make sure to bring a jacket or sweater.
④ We will have sterilization spray or liquid for all group classrooms and easy access for private lessons
