Primary and secondary school children usually go to school 5 days a week. This is from 5.5 or 6 fifteen or twenty years ago. The children in the private school can go more often 5 days a week, but this is unusual in contemporary Japan. Public school children go to school 5 days a week.
The previous answer about "go to school" as "is required to be in school." A large number of students in Japan, especially starting in high school, are members of clubs which often require school attendance (for practice and the like), or six or even seven days a week, depending on the season (for example, with sports clubs during the game of the season, seven days a week can get).
The youngest children (2 or 3 years) you can go to a kind of pre-nursery school 6 days a week, but only until 2 pm or so (from 8 am); nursery school children usually go to school 5 days a week.
The students of the university may have classes 6 days a week (Sunday is usually a day without classes), with the club activities which require or encourage attendance more often. In general, first-and second-year students have a heavier class load than wealthy students.
Irregular schooling is also very popular in Japan, especially in the cities. These may include cram schools (for a review, or a preview of the regular school curricula, with the goal of improving test scores) as often as 5 days or more a week, especially in the evenings and on weekends. At different moments in the life of a student, schooling spot is likely to include lessons for a couple of hours in swimming, kendo or karate, music (piano, being especially popular), the art, and so on. (In my relatively prosperous neighborhood, the norm for the lessons of this type seems to be three or four days a week.)
The adults in the same way, often takes spot the schooling of the lessons, the majority of which are held once a week. Many of these are held in the commercial "culture schools", which offer a blend of skill-focused lessons (painting, dancing, and the like), job-skill-focused computer classes, etiquette classes, and so on), and the approach unique, slightly academic lessons (such as the history of certain regions in the world or Japan, botany, and sundry).
