Learn Japanese in Akihabara / Ueno, Tokyo

Our Ueno branch is close to Akihabara station and a short 6-minute walk from JR Ueno station and a 2-minute walk from both JR Okachimachi Station and the Oedo, Hibiya, and Ginza Metro lines.

Japan Switch really helped me study more compared to just being at home lounging around.

Finding Japan Switch was the best thing that could happen to me starting my life in Tokyo almost three years ago. Together with you, I learned this great language despite the trouble of the pandemic. 

Teachers care about individuals’ progress and will cater the teaching material to individuals’ needs in private lessons.

I really appreciate the support I have received at Japan Switch with all of my requests and enquiries. I have really enjoyed all of my classes and I've met so many great people through the school.
