About Genki Japanese and Culture School Kyoto

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, in Kyoto in the Gion district, and in Nagoya in between Kansai and Tokyo. 
GenkiJACS was shortlisted as one of the world's top language schools at the STM Star Awards every year from 2009 to 2021. 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, and cultural activities, 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. We also offer group programs, volunteer placements, and long-term student visa programs with a partner school.
Our Kyoto branch is only minutes away from the wonderful Gion district, the heart of the traditional Japan. It is not uncommon to cross paths with a Maiko (an apprentice Geisha) or even a Geisha herself. People who visit Gion often feel like they have stepped into another period where there were no cars and only people pushing you in their carriages.

Genki Japanese and Culture School Kyoto


studied General Japanese

Great atmosphere and best place to learn

I studied at Genki Kyoto for 3 weeks and loved it! I had great classmates and amazing teachers! I was able to speak lots of Japanese in and outside of classes as the environment was so encouraging, friendly and supportive! I felt I improved so much in little amount of time. If I have the chance I'd love to study again at Genki Kyoto. Don't want to miss out on going! The only thing that needed improvement was the classrooms were stuffy as they don't have any windows and sometimes made it hard to focus. I would recommend doing the extra classes (conversational & cultural) as many people do and I regret not doing the Cultural add on classes.
