GenkiJACS Japanese class 1
Genki Japanese and Culture School (GenkiJACS) is a revolutionary Japanese language school that teaches communicational Japanese for everyday life and work, with flexible and fun courses and activities.
Our Tokyo branch is just minutes from Shinjuku Station, in the entertainment center of Tokyo. Despite that, the school is an oasis of calm, located in the beautiful grounds of the famous Hanazono Shrine.
GenkiJACS was voted as Star World Language School 2016 at the industry Star Awards, the most prestigious award for a language school, and the first time in history that a Japanese language school has received this award! We are also accredited internationally by IALC, the International Association of Language Centres.
We provide a variety of unique courses, including traditional culture, pop culture, and conversational Japanese. Classes focus on the full range of communication skills, to prepare you for using practical Japanese in the real world.
The school arranges accommodation for students in homestays, guesthouses, and private apartments. We generally offer 7-10 fun activities per week to keep students busy, including cultural experiences, tourist activities, and social events to introduce you to Japanese people.GenkiJACS
