Pictured: British Hills School in Fukushima Prefecture
I had heard about British Hills from a student of mine. She had attended classes there twice in the past and raved about it. She said it was like studying in the
English countryside. Yet it is located in Fukushima Prefecture, Japan.
"British Hills resembles a small British countryside village complete with castle, British style guesthouses, English speakers, country gardens and surroundings. Even the weather seems British! You are accommodated in luxury style fully furnished and serviced guesthouses. Similar to Bed and Breakfast cottages in England. There are between 20 and 30 apartments in each of the 8 guesthouses depending on the size of the house and of course the apartment. Each rooms can sleep between one and four guests. Every guesthouse has its own large luxurious lounge which is suitable for conference for up to 40 people; however it is also private and cosy enough for 1 or 2 people. All interiors are of a typical British Victorian style complete with imported fabrics and heavy well crafted wood and steel furniture. The main classroom and conference facilities, reception, main dining hall, library, indoor sporting and relaxation facilities and Chapel, are housed in the main castle-like Manor House. Also on the premises are the Craft House, the real English Pub, The Souvenir Shop and staff accommodation, external sporting facilities and the nature trail."--from the British Hills website
