Registration Information


February 1, 2021

Dear Nakayoshi Gakko Families,

Attached please find information for on-line registration for Nakayoshi Gakko’s 2021 Summer Session. The session will run for six half days, starting Tuesday, June 15, 2021 and ending Thursday, June 24, 2021. Online registration will open in February and close in March. Please check the Nakayoshi Gakko website in February. Families will receive an enrollment confirmation email by end of March.

Nakayoshi Gakko is a Japanese cultural and educational summer program for school-aged children entering grades 1 through 8 in Fall 2021. Classes are normally held at the Mountain View Buddhist Temple, located at 575 North Shoreline Blvd. in Mountain View; however, the program will be run virtually this year.

Nakayoshi Gakko is an independent, non-profit, parent-cooperative school. As a parent co-op, parent participation is crucial. We greatly appreciate and rely upon the time and energy of our parents in order to make our program run efficiently and to create an exceptional experience for the children. This year, parent volunteers will not be required as we understand that some parents will need to supervise their child(ren) during the session. We will, however, be asking for parents to help us with the preparation of some of the projects. Any and all assistance is greatly appreciated, and we invite you to e-mail us at if you’re able to contribute.

All students must have their on-line registration completed, their registration payment form (Nakayoshi Gakko Registration Payment Form) submitted for their family, and tuition payment received by no later than March 15, 2021.  Family and student information will only be accepted via the on-line registration system.

Fees must be paid via Paypal sent to

All on-line registrations and payments received after March 15, 2021 will be given less priority.

The Nakayoshi Gakko Board and school committees work hard to create a meaningful and fun summer program for our children. We look forward to meeting our new families and welcoming back our returning families for another memorable two weeks at Nakayoshi Gakko. Please contact us with questions.
