Japanese Language School GenkiJACS is an accredited and award-winning Japanese school teaching communicative 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 8 students per class), and focused on Western students' needs.
GenkiJACS Fukuoka is fully accredited by the national government to provide student visas, and was nominated by popular vote
as one of the world's star language schools (not just Japanese language school!) every year from 2009 to 2015. 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, and traditional culture, all with an emphasis on practical work. 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.
Small class size
Classes are limited to a maximum of 8 students and usually have around 4, giving you plenty of chance to practice
with the teacher. We have the smallest class sizes of any accredited school!
Almost 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.
In addition to being government-accredited, we are one of only two Japanese schools accredited by the International Association of Language Centres, and the only Japanese school shortlisted every year from 2009 to 2015 as one of the world's star language schools!
Only qualified teachers
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 - why not study at both!
