Interesting Vocational and Technical Colleges in Japan

Posted on March 13, 2016 | evankirby

GenkiJACS' new one-year Japanese course doesn't prepare you for entering a Japanese university. (You'll generally need 1.5 to 2 years of study for that.) But one year with us is enough for most vocational and technical two-year colleges in Japan! And a lot of these colleges have more interesting programs than are available at universities.

We've compiled a list of some of the most exciting programs at vocational colleges around Japan, that learning Japanese with GenkiJACS will prepare you for. We've divided the list by major. There are of course lots more schools teaching more traditional majors, but we've focused only on those that are especially interesting to foreigners studying in Japan, such as videogame design, anime/manga, and traditional Japanese culture. Whatever your reason for loving Japan is, you're sure to find something related in this list!
