Our Tokyo branch is just a short walk from Shinjuku Station, the world's busiest train station. Its closeness to Shinjuku Station’s transport hub makes it arguably the most conveniently located Japanese school in the country.

GenkiJACS Tokyo classroomThe school overlooks the famous Hanazono Shrine, and students pass through the traditional shrine gates to enter the building. Despite being in the center of the busiest part of Japan, the school's location is peaceful and relaxing, a perfect environment to learn Japanese language and culture.

GenkiJACS’ courses focus on everyday communicative Japanese, and learning both the language and the culture simultaneously, with courses such as Japanese Plus Traditional Culture, and Japanese Plus Pop Culture. The school holds between 7 and 10 activities and events each week, to keep students entertained. We pride ourselves on flexibility – students can start any Monday throughout the year, and study for as many weeks as they like. Class sizes are very small, with a maximum of 8 (exceptionally 9) students per class, and an average of 6.

Check out our handy guide on using the public transportation in Tokyo, including instructions on how to get to Shinjuku (where GenkiJACS is located) from both major airports in Tokyo (Narita and Haneda).
