Here, being kids is what makes us great.
It’s a global community, that’s free to let us think, explore, and create whatever we dream.
This isn’t a school. There are no teachers. No curriculum.
What we have is just a bunch of ideas. Kids’ ideas.
That makes the world much better and brighter.
We are the world’s thinkers. Inventors. Creators. And leaders.
And we are building the future. Right now, at VIVITA

Kanazawa flourished as a site of culture during the Edo Period (1603-1868 CE), and was also referred to as "Kaga Hyakumangoku."
It is home to a cityscape that retains the atmosphere of days gone by, such as abundant nature and local food, and traditional crafts alongside contemporary art.

In Kanazawa, the rich history and traditions of a city that flourished under a unique culture remain alive and well.

VIVISTOP Kanazawa is located on the 3rd floor of a renovated elementary school in the center of Kanazawa that was closed about ten years ago.

Here you will find professional chefs, artisans, artists, entrepreneurs, children, and others working together.

Kanazawa is home to many people of culture, so it is no wonder that you will find such diverse people interacting with each other here.
We also have large-scale kitchens stocked with state-of-the-art equipment, electric kilns, and other touches you would expect to find in Kanazawa.
