Kurate Gakuen is a former junior high school campus in Kurate, Fukuoka which has been saved from the wrecking ball in the most unusual way! The town of Kurate has chosen to offer the school grounds as location for cosplay shoots, which can be accessed with a minimum fee of just JPY 1000!
Kurate mayor Shinji Tokushima has stated in an interview, “We want to make this place a sanctuary and promote it to Asia and the world, that would lead to the revitalization of Kurate.”
To further spread the word about this unique tourist attraction, Kurate Gakuen is looking for its first Official MOE Ambassador! The duties of the ambassador include helping to share the latest news on their own social media services. Selected ambassadors will get a chance to visit the school in February on an all expense paid trip to Kurate Gakuen!

・be able to visit Kurate City Japan on 17 Feb – 19 Feb
