  Fukuoka TowerFree City Tour: Every week we offer a free tour of the city for new students. Find out the best places to visit, most delicious restaurants, and the cheap shops that all the locals go to!
  Friday partyFriday party: Every Friday, we take students to a different local restaurant to experience Japanese cuisine at its finest, whether its eating live fish, or a restaurant with a two-storey waterfall inside!
 

 

Movie Night: We show a Japanese movie (different genres) every week in the student lounge. Movies are a mix of live action and animated features. From Akira to Moonchild, there is something for everyone!

 

  OnsenOnsen Trip: We take students to a local onsen (hot spring), to experience bathing Japanese-style! Don't forget to try the electric bath...
  Weekend outings: On some weekends, we run outings to local festivals, shows, and famous places. For example, we regularly visit Mt. Aso (the largest active volcano in Japan), Nagasaki, a pottery workshop for hands-on practice, and a soba noodle workshop.
  Extra classesExtra lessons: Thanks to volunteers from school around the area, we put on extra kanji and conversation classes for free! Teaching these classes are students from Fukuoka Communication College and Fukuoka Womens University, among others.
  Extra classesSpecial classes: Whenever we can, we run special "one-off" additional classes, taught by visiting lecturers on Japanese cultural topics, that any students can attend. Recently, we have offered special classes on Japanese flower arranging, tea ceremony, and calligraphy.
  FestivalsAs well as day trips across the region, at the weekend o-matsuri are observed diligently by us at Genki JACS! And you can expect an escorted trip waiting for you, especially in the summer – so pack your yukata!

 

Event Reports from Students

Pottery

We walked for about 10 minutes to a small pottery shop near GenkiJacs.
We were taught how to sculpt a small bowl/plate thing. It was a very fun, and relaxing class.
The pottery sensei gave very detailed instructions and examples, and the school sensei that
came along translated/helped the students who needed. We were all allowed to use the pottery
teachers bowl as 'practice' before we tried to decorate our own bowls. Lots of mistake, but very fun.
This process took about 2 hours. I'd definitely give it another try if I was ever in Japan again.
The only thing bad is that it takes quite a while for the ceramics to dry and be given to you.

GenkiJacs Friday Nights Out!

Some teachers and a lot of students go out on a Friday evening to random, different restaurants around the city (all nearby the school!).
They're usually All You Can Eat/Drink for a very cheap price (usually 2-3,000 Yen).
These are definitely worth going to! You can almost ALWAYS expect a great time!
Talk with teachers and students outside of the school, and stuffing your face silly with
delicious foods! I ate some food that I never would have tried or known about if I was on my own.
I definitely recommend these for everyone who wants a great time!
