20-1 Schooling system in Japan
  In Japan, compulsory education is 6 years in elementary school from 6 years to 12 years old and 3 years in junior high school, from 12 years old, which makes 9 years in total. Foreign children are not obliged to go to elementary and junior high schools in Japan but can enter schools in the relevant school district where they live if they want to.
It depends on the location of your home which schools your children should enter. Day nurseries and kindergartens are available, if you want your preschool children to enter them.
