Kinokuni Children's Village School.

The name is long, but it's a tiny free school in the mountain area inWakayama.
Roughly two-hundreds boys and girls, from six to eighteen,are living happy lives.
Three-quarters of them are boarders, because they come from all over Japan.
The school put strong stress on child initiative, individuality, and "learn by doing".
Due to its unique policies like mixed-age classes and project-centred curriculum,
it has attracted more than one thousand visitors every year.
A.S.Neill writes, "possibly Summerhill is the happiest school in the world.
"We Know that Kinokuni is the happiest school, in Japan at least.
