Japanese Courses in

Early Booking is essential if you wish to secure your spot


We believe that you cannot fully understand the Japanese language without also understanding Japanese culture. Therefore, lessons focus not just on what to say, but on when, how and why to say it.

We adapt our lessons to the needs of each student, while keeping them practical and interesting, to give you the skills and confidence for success. A full schedule of events and activities, both at school and outside it, lets you master what you learn in class.

Our experienced and friendly teachers and staff provide individual attention and care. And our great locations in the center of both Fukuoka and Tokyo allow you to experience Japan the way you want it. These are the reasons so many people study with us again and again, and why we were voted for the last four years running as one of the world’s top language schools!

What sets GenkiJACS apart from other Japanese schools?

Small class size: A maximum of 8 students (9 in summer) gives you lots of chances to practice with the teacher.

Exciting courses: Study Japanese using manga/anime, or learn ancient arts such as tea ceremony and pottery - we have a variety of courses you won’t find at other schools

Flexible schedules: Unlike most Japanese schools, courses start almost every Monday year-round, and you can study for as long as you want, from 2 weeks to a year or more!

Great teachers: They’re the most important part of any school. That’s why we hire the best, and perform regular training. Students agree: you won’t find better

All ability levels accepted: Whether you are a complete beginner, an expert, or somewhere in between, we have a class for you!

Proven quality: Multiple accreditations and awards, including being selected as one of the top language schools in the world, are a guarantee of a great education! And now you can receive university credit!

Our Team

All of our teachers are graduates of a rigorous 420-hour Japanese teacher training course, the standard qualification for professional Japanese language school teachers. It is equivalent to a university minor, and the result is a very high standard of teaching. Most teachers are bilingual, speaking English as well as Japanese.

You’ll spend more time with the teachers than almost anyone else you meet in Japan, so we only hire the best!

How to get there

Tokyo stands on the world fashion scene as a truly international city. It off ers the best of modern Japanese culture, cutting edge entertainment, and a range of things to do that is unparalleled. Tokyo’s top attractions include Tokyo Sky Tree, one of the world’s tallest buildings; Akihabara, Japan’s electronics mecca; Harajuku, the fashion epicenter; and of course Shinjuku, the home of fun.

GenkiJACS’ Tokyo branch is just minutes on foot from Shinjuku Station, Tokyo’s central train station, in the heart of the city’s entertainment district. We can’t think of a more convenient location for a Japanese school, surrounded by hundreds of restaurants, karaoke boxes, bars, game centers and more.

Despite that, you study in a perfectly calm and serene environment, as the school is in the grounds of the famous Hanazono Shrine. Every morning you’ll pass through the shrine’s massive red torii gates to get to school. Classroom windows overlook the central shrine itself, and you can take lunch on the shrine steps.
