Japanese Language Schools are a model of the globalized society of the future. In this international environment, students are stimulated each day and encouraged to grow as individuals through their language studies. The teaching philosophy at the KLA Kyoto Chuo School is to train people to participate in an international society. From Kyoto, a city symbolic of traditional Japanese culture, it is our intention that, through our teachings, our students will grow into the representatives of Japan’s development along side the rest of the world.

If you’re going to live in Japan, it’s a waste to only learn Japanese! Why don’t you study in Kyoto, a city where traditional Japanese culture can be found around every corner? You will undoubtedly gain a deeper understanding of Japan.
The international city of Kyoto is also known as a student town where approximately 1 out of every 10 people is a student. You’ll be able to create new networks of Japanese students and international students from every country.
To families: Every staff member here will give our full support. Please do not hesitate to contact us!

In a novel by the famous Japanese writer Banana Yoshimoto, there is a passage that goes like this:
“Time, unstoppable as it is, isn’t something to regret. It keeps flowing so that we can keep having beautiful moments.”
The time you spend in Japan might be just a small part of your long life. But, for that very reason, those days will be a rich, irreplaceable time that radiates brightly.
I am looking forward to sharing many beautiful moments with all of you, here in Japan, as you head toward your dreams.

I love students’ smiles when they say, “Ah! I get it!”
In this world, there are still many things we don’t understand and can’t do.
If you have teachers and friends nearby, you might start to understand things you couldn’t when you were thinking about them on your own.
This is a place that’s always overflowing with lovely smiles and laughter.
Why not come and have a lot of “Ah! I get it!” moments with us?

Hello, my name is Tazawa. I’m in charge of the EJU preparatory course. Since test-taking approaches to the EJU vary depending on the university, we do not limit ourselves to simple subject review. Rather, we gain an understanding of sought-after content and past question tendencies to provide you with the most effective instruction possible. I truly look forward to meeting you.
