Training Life in Japan

This page is an introduction to life during training in Japan.


During the training program, AOTS trainees will be accommodated at one of AOTS Kenshu (Training)* Centers, either Tokyo Kenshu Center or Kansai Kenshu Center.

Kenshu Centers play an important role during the training as "Home Away from Home" in order to reduce the cultural gap and provide comfortable circumstances. The trainees will enjoy various types of meals at a canteen including dishes for vegetarian or Muslims and from their home countries, and be well supported by a 24/7 reception desk.
