Positive aspects of school: Teachers and organization. The manager at Tokyo school, Demi, answered all my questions the day after the questions were sent. Everything is available, clear and fast. The teachers are all different, with their own approach to teaching.
Insider tips about what future students should not miss: In order to live in a host family, in my opinion, you need to have at least a minimal knowledge of Japanese. Approximately the level I received after 40 hours of my studies :) despite the fact that in my case the mother spoke English, it was clear that the desire to communicate in Japanese prevailed. Therefore, there was a language barrier. There is no problem with food. My way to metro took around 15 minutes, and there were 15 cafes on my route. You'd better buy Pasmo or Suica card to use public transport. This card is much faster and more convenient. Credit / debit cards are accepted at most stores, but cash is required to pay for a travel card and in almost all cafes. You have to have at least 30,000 yen with you. Regarding apartments: they are next to Ryugoku metro station, the way to school takes about 40 minutes in general: on foot and by train.
Other comments: Many thanks to the school! Maybe I will come again for a couple of weeks. I did not assess the events, because I could not attend any. But it's my fault. The school organized an activity every Friday, for a small fee. Classes are OK. There is air conditioning. The building overlooks an office building and a temple, quite quiet.
The teacher were extremly friendly and gave their best to make everyone happy and answer all questions properly. The atmosphere was very nice as it felt more like a meeting point for lots of people to you hang out together.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: The private lessons at the school are very good. Conversationclass does not bring very much. Since you mainly only talk to classmates about some topic, which is determined by the teacher.
Other comments: The lessons were interesting but the progress was not very fast so that we did only 2 chapters in 6 weeks.
The teachers were very motivated and friendly. I made a lot of progress in learning the language.

Insider tips about what future students should not miss: Don't miss out on the social activities the school provides, they are all really fun but unfortunately sometimes they have to be cancelled because not enough students participate.
Other comments: The location of the school right in shinjuku is great, it is pretty amazing that it is in one of the busiest districts of Tokyo but it is very calm in the school area because it is located right next to a shrine.
Classes organized in order to have a few students (in this way you can be followed better)
