Japanese Language School GenkiJACS:
Learn Japanese with the Best!
Japanese Language School GenkiJACS is an accredited and award-winning Japanese school teaching communicational study abroad courses, learning the Japanese language and culture in a relaxed and friendly environment. We have schools in central Tokyo, and in Fukuoka City in Southern Japan. Classes are small (maximum 7 students per class), and focused on Western students' needs.
GenkiJACS was nominated by popular vote as one of the world's star language schools (not just Japanese language school!) every year from 2009 to 2012. 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, traditional culture, and study for exams, all with an emphasis on practical work, inside and outside of the classroom. For students coming from overseas to study abroad at our language school, we can prepare a range of accommodation options including homestays and dorms, and arrange various activities for the duration of your stay. We're here to make learning Japanese worthwhile and enjoyable - that's why students return to GenkiJACS again and again!

GenkiJACS is not just your normal Japanese language school.
Here are some of the differences:
Courses start every Monday year-round, and you can study for as long as you want, from 2 weeks to a year or more! We schedule classes to fit your needs, instead of forcing you to learn when we want you to learn!
Small class size
Classes are limited to a maximum of 7 students, and usually have around 4, giving you plenty of chance to practice with the teacher.
All ability levels accepted
Whether you are a complete beginner, an expert, or somewhere in between, we have a class for you. Multiple segments of each class means you're not stuck in a group with people much higher or lower than you.
Classes focused on Western students
Unlike almost all other Japanese schools, 90% of our students are from the US, Europe and Australia. So the content of our classes is focused specifically on the needs of those students.
One of only two Japanese schools accredited by the International Association of Language Centres, and shortlisted every year from 2009 to 2012 as one of the world's star language schools! Students return again and again.
Only qualified teachers
Unlike some other Japanese schools, all of GenkiJACS' teachers are graduates of a 420-hour Japanese teacher training course at a recognized study institution. We hire only the best, and perform regular training. Students agree: you won’t find better teachers!
Our Tokyo school is in the heart of Shinjuku, and Fukuoka City is the perfect place to study Japanese, with some of Japan's best weather and most beautiful beaches. A great combination!
