Greetings from the Director

JCLI Japanese Language School is located in Shinjuku and is situated in the center of all that Japan represents. Since its establishment in 1980, we have grown from a small school to a major establishment that has students from all around the world. After graduating from our school, many students go on to prestigious universities and have good opportunities.

We have a good amount of professional teachers and staff, and we have extensive support to all of our students in all aspects of life in Japan, such as study, lifestyle, and career counseling.
We also occasionally hold events and school trips so that students can become well-rounded in all aspects of the culture.

We'll help you reach any dreams you may have.

We'll be waiting for you in Japan, and will be here for you from the beginning to the end.
