Genki Japanese School Tokyo

Tokyo, Japan

This acclaimed and award-winning Japanese language school in the center of Tokyo offers small-group, high-intensity classes and lots of fun cultural activities.

Genki Japanese and Culture School (GenkiJACS) is a revolutionary Japanese language school, located just minutes on foot from Shinjuku Station, in the most fun part of Tokyo. Despite that, the school is an oasis of calm, situated in the beautiful grounds of a famous shrine.

The school is incredibly flexible. Courses start every Monday throughout the year, and run for as many weeks as you want to study. Choose from a variety of fun courses, including Japanese Plus Traditional Culture, Pop Culture, and more. Accommodation options include homestay, dorm, and private apartment. And the school usually organizes between 7 and 10 extra-curricular activities per week, to keep students busy.

Classes are extremely small, with a maximum of 8 students, so you have lots of chances to practice with the teacher, and get personal attention to your learning needs. Classes are focused on the learning styles of people from European language backgrounds.

GenkiJACS was voted as 2016's Star World Language School, the highest award in the language travel industry, and the first time that a Japanese school has ever won this award! The school is also accredited internationally by IALC, the International Association of Language Centres.


Japanese Plus Culture
From 18 years old 8 students per class 1 lesson — 50 minutes

This course, available in either Traditional Culture or Pop Culture flavors, gives you the same 20 Japanese classes each week as the Standard Japanese course, plus 3 activities, usually held outside school with a specialist teacher. For example, on the Traditional Culture course, you'll make Japanese pottery, learn calligraphy, practice tea ceremony, learn to put on a kimono, and much much more! With the Pop Culture course, you'll visit a maid cafe, learn to draw manga, cosplay as your favorite characters, and more!
