    • After one year it is possible for the selected student to live with his/her family if he/she wished to do so, but the foundation cannot give any assistance for his/her family.

    • Note: It is generally very hard for students from abroad to live and study in Japan with his/her family, as the student will meet many difficulties such as the high cost of living, housing problems and language difficulty.
