The Japanese language school in Kyoto, is the sister school of Fukuoka and Tokyo. The school consists of 9 classrooms and a large student lounge. The school is conveniently located in the city centre, just west of the Gion district, below the Imperial Palace.

The ideal months to visit are April (during cherry blossom season) or October (when maple trees are a riot of red leaves). The summers are humid and hot and the winters cold – but any month is a good month to be in Kyoto!

Students can start on any Monday throughout the year (with set start dates each month for beginners), and study for as many weeks as required. The school aims to be flexible and fun and offers a range of social activities every month, to ensure students learn about Japan’s culture, as well improving their Japanese language skills.

The courses focus on everyday Japanese communication skills and learning both the language and the culture simultaneously, with courses such as Japanese plus Traditional Culture, and Japanese plus Pop Culture. The school arranges activities and events each month. Class sizes are very small, with a maximum of 8 (exceptionally 9) students per class, and an average of 5/6.

The Japanese School teachers are all native speakers of Japanese, with University degrees, who specialise in teaching Japanese as a second language, many of whom have taught abroad before coming to work in Kyoto.
