the japanese students are about 18-20 but a handful are a year or two older. Some foreign students are up to 25.

thank you! i'm 17 turning 18 and I aim to go Bunka after my 3 years diploma program.
just afraid that I might be an old student in class. heheh

so lucky of you to be in that school~ btw, how much do you spend on your daily expenses per year? and do you take a part time job?

sorry for asking so much cause I want to plan early. Hehe.
Thank You so much!

it depends on your course-
the design courses are pretty intense and I dont think there`s much time for a part time job. My course ended up being a little more lax so I worked just a few hours a week.

You could get away with $600 a month on personal expenses, but youll be eating onigiri everyday for every meal. Dont forget you have to buy fabric, sewing machines, supplies as well. AND its in tokyo--not cheap.

But most of all, know you have to speak/understand japanese at AT LEAST a 2-kkyu level of JLPT. I recommend 1kkyu of course.

難しいと思うけど、自分の努力次第だからね 頑張って~

Tōkyō Bunka Fashion School
Hi everyone,
As my first message on this forum i'll talk about the thread that was my very reason to want to be a part of this : the Tōkyō Bunka Fashion School, which is a well know fashion school but not very easy to know more about ! I went on various forums to check if some people did talk about it but even here in this section I didn't find anything. I went to their website and even though they do have an english translation i'm not sure i understood what I wanted to know wichi is : How do you get in ? All i could find was that they requested ou to have a decent/good level of japanese oral and written comprehesion and to have enug money to be able to afford daily life in Japan but .. is it really all ? Does anyone study in it or knows someone who do ? I'm really interested in knowing more about it so if someone got a website adress about this school ( which is not the official page.. ) I'd like to know it !
Well, thanks

Welcome to the Fashion Spot, pluiie!

We already have a thread about Bunka ... so I am merging your thread with it. Maybe there's some helpful information in here already.
