The school overlooks the famous Hanazono Shrine, and the students actually pass through these traditional shrine gates, to enter the building. Despite being in the centre of the busiest part of Japan, the school’s location is peaceful and relaxing, a perfect environment to learn Japanese and experience the Japanese culture. The school is a short walk from Shinjuku Station, the world’s busiest train station. Its closeness to Shinjuku Station’s transport hub makes it easy to access the whole of Tokyo city.
The courses focus on everyday Japanese, and learning both the language and the culture simultaneously, with courses such as Japanese plus Traditional Culture, and Japanese plus Pop Culture. The school holds activities and events each month, to keep students entertained and help them develop a fuller appreciation of Japanese culture (and have a little fun, too!). Class sizes are very small, with a maximum of 8 students per class (very occasionally 9), and an average of 4/5.
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 Tokyo.
