fukuoka School Introduction

Teaching staff


KLA Fukuoka School is located in the suburbs of Fukuoka City – a city selected as the most livable city in Asia. Students are studying Japanese with us for a variety of purposes – to enroll in Japanese universities, graduate schools, and vocational schools. Our school, surrounded by rich nature, offers an environment appropriate for learning. Students enjoy not only “Practical Japanese learning” in the school, but also interaction with elementary and high school students in the neighborhood as well as participation in international exchange meetings with local residents. In addition, while Fukuoka School is not a large school, we take pride in providing quality support. For those trying to realize their dreams, as well as those seeking a dream, let’s make your dream comes true altogether. We support you!

Teaching Coordinator, Ms. Setsuko WATANABE


Fukuoka is said to be one of the most livable towns in Japan, and many people move from Tokyo and other areas. Our relationship with Asia is deep, and since long ago, we have accepted many international students from the region. Our school is located in a rich natural environment in the suburbs of Fukuoka City. Although we are a small school, the relationships between teachers and students is close, we encourage an at-home atmosphere. We offer many opportunities to interact with the local people, and support international exchange at the grassroots level. Why don’t you happily study with us in an environment that provides a charm different from a big city?

Teacher, Ms. Izumi SHIOKAWA
