Long-term course with Genki Japanese and Culture school Fukuoka,

under a student visa

As 2020 has been very hard on everyone, we wanted to have an offer for our students to kickstart 2021 with a bang! What's better than an extra 10% discount for our long-term visa courses bringing it up to 35%?

If you are a complete beginner or low beginner learner and don't mind slightly bigger classes, then this course is for you! The number of students per class will be increased to 12 instead of the regular 8.

The system of learning and curriculum will stay the same as our regular 1-year and 18-months courses, but the pace of learning will slow down slightly, due to the bigger classes.

Places are limited, so seize the day and take this only 2021 opportunity!

Looking for a shorter-term course instead? Try these options!

Mandatory test during your study with us!

Mandatory test during your study

The J.Test

During your year of study with us, you will need to take the J.Test. It is an external test, and the Japanese government requires our students to take it. No choice, but to take it!


We focus on teaching communicative Japanese and the J.Test tests one's ability to communicate in Japanese. There are no coincidences in this world, but then again, sometimes there are!


We all like free things. We will cover the test fee for you.

Offered regulary

The test takes place six times per year! So, if you love taking tests, technically you could take the test every other month. We can't claim to understand this hobby, but it is way more frequent than the twice a year JLPT schedule

Course FAQs

No, this course is only available in Fukuoka. Unfortunately, we are only able to provide student visa support at our Fukuoka campus. But if you are hoping to study in Tokyo or Kyoto, do check our 6 months course.
We know why you opened that! We're like you, we are not big fans of tests. But this test is a mandatory requirement, and orders come from the Japanese government. Call us silly, but when requirements come from the Japanese government, we tend to follow their instructions :).
In short YES, you will need to take this test at least once during your study with us.
Yes, you are allowed to work for up to 28 hours per week during term time, and up to 40 hours per week during your holiday. However, remember that your primary goal is to study, so please do not allow work to interfere with your school hours.

Of course, working in Japan could be fun and if you would like to try, due to our scheduling we ask our students to find a part-time job that will allow you to work on weekends and after 18:00 on weekdays.
Your level of Japanese you achieve in 1-year / 18 months will dictate whether you can extend your course or not. If you are too high of a level, we might recommend an alternative school or can discuss further options with you.
A good number of our students have found employment after studying with us. It does depend on your level of Japanese at the start of your course. Most jobs in Japan ask for a university degree and at least a JLPT 2 level of Japanese.
As much as we would love to, we are a Japanese language school, and not a job placement agency :) We can of course help with advice, writing your CV, and preparing for your job interview.
What a great goal! Yes, you can if you would like to. It does require a certain level of Japanese as you can imagine, but even if you have never formally learned Japanese, we would be super happy to be your first step towards achieving your goal.

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