Nanzan Elementary School sits in the heart of Tokyo, just minutes on foot from the illustrious Roppongi Hills and is easily accessible from the Azabu Juban, Moto Azabu and Hiroo areas - all of which are popular residential areas of Tokyo's thriving expatriate community.
CLASSES AT THIS LOCATION
GROUND & FOOTWARE
The ground is a safety-approved, rubberized playground and as such all children are asked to wear flat-soled trainers (sneakers) for their own safety, football boots (cleats) with molded or screw-in studs will not be permitted on this surface (please see our Footware Chart).
Take either the Oedo or Namboku subway line to Azabu Juban station. Walk up Azabu Juban high street almost all the way to Roppongi Hills. Just before the high street joins the major road (leading to Roppongi tunnel), there's a small road on the left that rises sharply around a corner. Nanzan Elementary School is located 100 meters along this road on the left-hand side, opposite Roppongi High School.
Unfortunately parking is not available at the school itself, so parents bringing their children by car are asked to park in the nearby Roppongi Hills complex or one of the parking areas in Azabu Juban.
We will go ahead in the light rain either at Nanzan or at the International School of Sacred Heart (ISSH) in Hiroo (depending on the condition of the grounds at Nanzan), in case of doubtful weather we will inform you on the day by 12pm noon on our Facebook page*: https://www.facebook.com/BritishFootballAcademy.

If there is heavy rain, snow (thick on the ground), lightning, or the ground is in poor condition due to earlier inclement weather the ground must not be used, and the sessions will be cancelled.
Please understand that there will be no refund or make up sessions in the event of cancelled sessions due to the weather/ground condition.
Please also make sure you read and comply the regulations in the BFA members guide.
