Japanese Language and Culture School in Fukuoka is a unique Japanese language school that offers students the opportunity to learn Japanese language and culture
in a relaxed and friendly learning environment.
Fukuoka City is the capital city of Fukuoka Prefecture, and has a population of approximately 1.3 million people. It is situated on the Sea of Japan (or the East Sea), and is well protected from the stronger elements of Japanese weather - earthquakes and typhoons are rare, summers are warm, and the people are friendly. Its moderate climate, beautiful scenery and great location have made it popular with travelers both from within Japan and other countries. In 1997, 1999 and again in 2000, Fukuoka was ranked the best city in Asia by Asiaweek magazine. And in 2006, it was chosen by Newsweek as one of the world's top 10 boomtowns!
Fukuoka's renowned cuisine (the city has more restaurants per person than anywhere else in Japan) and warm-hearted people will make your stay here a pleasure. Foreigners are still not too common a sight in Fukuoka, so you will be sure to enjoy plenty of attention, and people are always happy to help you, even if your grasp of the language is not perfect. In addition, Fukuoka is bursting with culture: its many art galleries, museums, and theaters will give you your fill of the Japanese arts, while the nightlife is the best on the island.
Fukuoka is also unparalleled in convenience - the international airport is a mere 10 minutes from the center of the city by subway, and from there it is only another 10 minutes by bus or bicycle to the nearest beach. Japan's famous shinkansen (bullet trains) will take you to any city in Japan in short order, or you can fly to Tokyo in an hour and a half.
Japanese Language School in Fukuoka offers courses in a range of areas, including conversational Japanese, Japanese through pop culture, Japanese culture, and study for exams, all with an emphasis on practical work, inside and outside of the classroom. For students coming from overseas to study abroad, we can arrange a homestay family, and various activities for the duration of your stay. We're here to make your Japanese learning enjoyable and worthwhile.
