We offer a range of extracurricular activities each day for all students.

Bukatsu is offered for free by Kyoto International School teachers for enrolled students. These activities provide students with experiences within a range of areas such as gardening, reading, board games, photography, dance, fitness, STEM, and other areas in support of the PYP Approaches to Learning.

Bukatsu is available 3:30 to 4:30 on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday for 12 weeks each semester. Please note that there are no bukatsu options on any Wednesday.
