Learn Japanese in Japan
Japan is a great place for an immersive language experience, because almost 98% of the population is native Japanese. This means that, wherever you go, you’ll find opportunities for language practice and cultural understanding. Learn Japanese in Japan’s captivating capital city, Tokyo; in the vibrant coastal city of Fukuoka on Kyushu; or in Kyoto, Japan’s ‘Old Capital’ and cradle of culture. Find out more about these major metropolitan cities as you improve your language skills and enjoy dynamic and engaging social activities organised by our schools.
Contrary to popular belief, Japan is not just one landmass - it’s actually an archipelago comprised of a whopping 6,852 islands! Most people live on the five main islands: Hokkaido, Honshu, Shikoku, Kyushu, and Okinawa. Though each island has something different to offer and its own unique atmosphere and customs, life on all the islands shares one thing in common: Japan’s unique culture. The country embraces everything that is stylish, contemporary, and - in many cases - bizarre, which has led to the globally popular concept of Japan’s ‘Gross National Cool’. Japanese people also cherish much of their history, traditions, and classical arts, however, with the result that today’s Japan features traditionally rigid behavioural norms and ancient festivals alongside futuristic Internet cafés and the cartoonish concept of ‘kawaii’ (‘cuteness’). It really is a country unlike any other!
A truly beautiful nation, Japan is full of fascinating history, breath-taking scenery, and friendly people.
