About Genki Japanese and Culture School Tokyo

Genki Japanese and Culture School is an internationally acclaimed communicational Japanese language school that offers short-term study abroad courses, learning the Japanese language and culture in a relaxed and friendly environment. We are located in the heart of Fukuoka City, in South Japan, in Tokyo close to Shinjuku station, and in Kyoto in the Gion district. 
GenkiJACS was shortlisted as one of the world's top language schools at the STM Star Awards every year from 2009 to 2018. We are one of only two Japanese language schools in the world that are accredited by IALC, the International Association of Language Centres. We offer courses in a range of areas, including conversational Japanese, pop culture, and traditional culture, all with an emphasis on practical work, inside and outside of the classroom. We can prepare a range of accommodation options including homestays and dorms, and arrange a wide range of activities.
Classes are limited to a maximum of 8 students. We accept all levels of learners, from complete beginners to advanced. All teachers are qualified, and bilingual English/Japanese. Courses start every Monday throughout the year, and run for as long as students want.
Our Tokyo branch is located in the center of the most exciting part of Tokyo, Shinjuku, so there are thousands of things to do within walking distance. However, the school is in the grounds of the famous Hanazono Shrine, so it is peaceful and quiet around, and from the classroom windows you only see trees and the shrine.

Amazing stay at GenkiJACS Tokyo

I have studied in GenkiJACS Tokyo branch for a period of four months from the beginning of March until the end of July.
The experience was not less than pleasurable. All the stages from the enrollment until the last of day of school were really good.
Unlike many other schools, GenkiJACS was quick to reply to my mail of inquiry and has given me all the information I wanted and more. I have been in direct contact with the school all the time prior to my arrival. The detailed site of the school is also commendable.
The school was centrally located, a two minute walk from Shinjuku-Sanchome station. The classes and the lounge were well equipped.
Upon the first day of arrival I have been greeted with welcoming smiles from the staff and has felt welcome ever since. Both coordinators went out of their way to help me with everything and anything and made my stay much more comfortable.
All the teachers were very experienced and the classes were fun. The study material was carefully selected, and the classes and in-class exercises were well prepared.
I have also enjoyed the extra-curricular activities.
During my study period my Japanese level has risen substantially, and I am looking forward to return for a longer period to study further.
