Directors Message

Today, when international exchange is becoming more and more popular, the number of foreigners learning Japanese is increasing rapidly.

We would like to provide a better learning environment to meet the diversifying needs of Japanese language education.

At our school, we teach learners to bring their Japanese proficiency to a high level efficiently within limited time and conditions.

We aim to develop human resources who can play an active role on the international stage by having experienced teachers help each student and provide appropriate guidance.
