What are the prefectures with the most international schools in Japan?

According to our editorial research, the prefecture with the most international schools is Tokyo.
Kanagawa and Hyogo prefectures are next with five schools each.
The ports of Yokohama and Kobe were opened by the Japan-US Treaty of Amity and Commerce in Kanagawa and Hyogo Prefectures.

Historically, foreign traders were stationed in these prefectures early on, and international schools were established there early on.

Tokyo, Kanagawa and Hyogo Prefectures

For every prefecture that has many international schools, there are regions that have few.

Overall, Tohoku, Koshinetsu, Chubu, and Shikoku have been found to have fewer international schools.

Incidentally, Brazilian schools, Chinese schools and Korean schools teach the education and philosophy of the country or ethnic group.
In other words, they are not considered international schools, but national schools (ethnic or national schools).

National schools require that the applicant be a citizen of that country or ethnic group, have lived in that country or ethnic group in the past, or have a parent or guardian from that country or ethnic group.

National schools are not included in the statistics because they were founded for a different purpose than international schools, which are more diverse and multicultural.
