Japanese in Japan - Fukuoka City

Fukuoka City is the largest city in Kyushu, South-Western Japan, and was a contender for the 2016 Olympic Games. Its moderate climate, beautiful scenery and great location have made it popular with travellers worldwide. Fukuoka was ranked as the best city in Asia by Asiaweek magazine for 1997, 1999 and 2000, and picked as one of the world’s 10 boomtowns by Newsweek in 2006. Close to both mainland China and Korea, it is a link to the rest of Asia and beyond. Summers are warm, winters mild, and the people friendly. Fukuoka’s renowned cuisine and warm-hearted people will make your stay here a pleasure. In addition, Fukuoka is bursting with culture: its many art galleries, museums, and theatres 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 10 minutes from the city centre by subway, and it is only another 10 minutes by bus or bike to the nearest beach. You’re sure to fall in love with Fukuoka!

We are a new type of Japanese school that focuses on the specific needs of Western learners and uses communicative and practical techniques to teach useful Japanese in interesting ways. Courses and schedules are very flexible: classes start every Monday, and run for as many weeks as you want. Prices are low, and we offer large discounts for two or more people coming to study together.

Courses range from standard conversational Japanese, to Pop Culture (study modern Japanese using current materials), to Traditional Culture (study about and experience a variety of traditional arts while learning the language) and more. Classes are small, usually 2-4 students, and all teachers are certified by the Ministry of Education in teaching Japanese as a Second Language.
