Now offering Japanese classes in Akihabara / Ueno!

Only 1 minute on foot from Okachimachi and Ueno-Hirokoji Stations!

Learning a language can be really difficult, but the very friendly staff and teachers make it more fun and enjoyable. They do a great job of adjusting to my individual needs as a learner.

The teachers are fantastic and really give you all the attention you need. I had two private lessons and one group lesson [a week] and I have nothing but great reviews for both.

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

I liked how the staff were honest with what the school can offer to its students and I got the sense they care about their students.
