Studying Japanese in Japan is the perfect opportunity to learn about Japan life and culture while studying at our Japanese schools in Japan. The language skills you will gain should set you on the path for future success, wherever and whatever that may be.
Japan is an island country in East Asia. Located in the Pacific Ocean, it lies to the east of China, Korea and Russia, stretching from the Sea of Okhotsk in the north to the East China Sea in the south. The characters that make up Japan's name mean "sun-origin", which is why Japan is sometimes identified as the "Land of the Rising Sun".
Japan is a country where the past meets the future. Japanese culture stretches back millennia, yet has also adopted (and created) the latest modern fashions and trends.
The Japanese are well known for their politeness. Many Japanese are thrilled to have visitors to their country and are incredibly helpful to lost and bewildered-looking foreigners. Younger Japanese people are often extremely interested in meeting and becoming friends with foreigners as well. Do not be surprised if a Japanese person (usually of the opposite gender) approaches you in a public place and tries to initiate a conversation with you in somewhat coherent English.
Whether you are a teenager, a university student, executive or professional, and whatever is the reason for improving your Japanese language skills, you will find our program to match your learning needs and budget.
