School History and Philosophy

July 4th,2000: Opening of school in Ebisu 3 Cho-me,Shibuya-ku, Tokyo
(started in a 4 story building in Shirokane, close to Keio Preschool and Hiroo Hospital)

From the owner’s experience of living in America, our longtime dream was to create an internationalized environment for our future children.We searched for one year, and found the perfect place to open our school. The neighborhood reminded us environment with a nice yard.

August 1st, 2004: Moved to 1-5-14 Hiroo, Shibuya-ku, Tokyo (current location)

This area is known as the “Village of Academics,” as the famous Japanese educator, Yukichi Fukuzawa, spent his lifetime here.
It is also an area full of nature. We are located between Meiji Street and Prime Square. There is also a famous temple next to our school.
Our school is a white colord house with an orenge door that always brightly welcomes all children all children and families.

Our school name, “Sesame International Preschool” comes for the special phrase,
“Open Sesame!”
We wish for a bright future to be “open” to all Sesame children.
