History of IAY
IAY is a pioneer of language education in Sapporo and has a 40-year history.

During the Sapporo Winter Olympics held in 1972, we invited many foreign instructors around the world to train interpreters in order to support the event. However, many instructors were having difficulties adapting to a different culture that they had never experienced before.

In view of that, we started to teach Japanese language and at the same time introduce Japanese culture and customs to help them adapt to their daily life in Sapporo. This is how IAY get started in the Japanese language education.

Since then, the Japanese economy has grown rapidly due to internationalization, and the number of foreigners living in Sapporo has also increased. In response to this, we began to provide support to foreigners by offering Japanese language education requested by government agencies, companies and individuals.

We will continue to make an effort to create a society for coexistence with foreigners through Japanese language and foreign language education so that people around the world can deepen their mutual understanding.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
