Study at Genki Japanese School for 6 months, at a big discount off our standard Japanese tuition cost! This special course is one of our most popular items. This course can be taken by students from countries with visa waiver agreements with Japan or with a working holiday visa (check here to have more information about visas for Japan). In most cases, no special visa is required to stay in Japan for up to 6 months. Start dates are also flexible!
This course is not available on a student visa. For student visa courses, please see our 1-year study course instead.
The Japanese student visa application is quite complex and difficult. However, GenkiJACS can complete most of the process for you, and provides support in English for any parts you have to do. We're here to make it easy for you! As of 2022, 100% of our visa applications have been approved.

Our core Japanese course, booked and paid in advance for 24 weeks. You'll study 20 class hours per week - two classes focus on grammar, and two classes focus on applying your skills to real-world situations. Classes have a maximum of 9 students, and focus on communication skills for daily life, rather than academic Japanese.
As this course is already discounted, other discounts (returner's discount, group discount, etc.) do not apply to this course.
Payment must be made in advance for at least 6 months' tuition.
In case of cancellation after the start of the program, refunds will be given for any terms that have not yet begun. No refund will be given for terms that have already begun. Please note that these conditions are different from our standard refund conditions.

The waiver is valid for 90 days from the day of entry, after which you would be required to leave and re-enter the country in order to extend your waiver for a further 90 days. We will be able to guide you through the process and provide all required documentation.
Alternatively, if you can stay in Japan without a visa, then you definitely do not need a visa. :)
