GenkiJACS Fukuoka

Welcome to the head branch of GenkiJACS, producing pro Japanese speakers since 2005.

  • Why Genki Fukuoka?
  • Student visas available
  • Full immersion, almost no English
  • Affordable city


Our school is centrally located just minutes from Hakata Station, in the heart of Fukuoka City - a small, relaxed city with few foreigners, creating the perfect environment for immersion, forcing you to use your Japanese as much as possible. Being just 20 mins by bus to the nearest beaches and 15 mins by subway from downtown/entertainment/shopping, you'll struggle to find a more convenient location for your Japanese study! Fukuoka is also the most affordable of our locations to stay in long-term - as if you needed any other excuses! Read more about Fukuoka city here.

GenkiJACS and Journeys collab for
«Twice the fun!»

Journeys is a private English language school operating within GenkiJACS (Fukuoka) teaching local adult students on weekday afternoons, evenings and Saturdays. Thanks to this partnership, there will be various opportunities for our students to gain useful experiences:

Journeys teaches Japanese students who want to practice their English skills, GenkiJACS teaches foreign students who want to practice their Japanese skills. What better synergy than this? Each week, Journeys organizes events in the school's lounge where you will be able to talk to Japanese people!
Studying Japanese is great! Taking advantage of your trip abroad to improve your English skills is even better. Not a native English speaker? Use the synergy created by GenkiJACS and Journeys to practice speaking English during our events, and double your experience with us!
You have experience teaching English, or hold a CELTA, TEFL or equivalent qualifications? Or maybe you simply are interested in finding out about teaching English in Japan? You could be the ideal candidate to teach Journey's students part-time. Studying and working at the same place? Sweet gig!

Begin the journey of a lifetime. Speak Japanese, live Japan.
