Vice Japan: Little Nepal in Tokyo

From Vice Japan, a documentary about Tokyo’s Nepalese community:


The area around JR Asagaya Station, 10 minutes west of Shinjuku on the Chuo Line, is now becoming home to Japan’s biggest Nepalese community. Everest International School, the first such Nepalese school in the world which opened in 2013, was the catalyst for the community to form. Through the lens of the children who attend that school, we search for their “Asagaya Life.”
