GenkiJACS was shortlisted as one of the world's top language schools at the STM Star Awards every year from 2009 to 2014. 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.
