The course has been designed to connect culture, language and experience, with a focus on practical conversation and interactions with locals. Mini culture lessons are also included in the curriculum, so you can truly make the most our of your time in Japan.
You will discover the real Japan and things you would never be able to experience in a big city! Hand-made crafts, local specialty food, and the friendly locals will change your life.
Originally a local primary school, the building has been repurposed as a community center. The upstairs classrooms have been untouched, meaning you can immerse yourself like you are in a real-life anime or manga.
Rediscover the simple things in life by immersing yourself in the beautiful nature that surrounds the school, and by gazing at the impeccable stars above.
You will be using your Japanese in day to day life, unlike in the other parts of Japan where English is prevalent.
