About us

Go! Go! Nihon Live and Study in Japan!

Go! Go! Nihon was founded in 2009 by two Japanese language school students, Davide and John. They wanted to make it easier for others like them to live and study in Japan after their own application experiences were filled with endless paperwork and communication difficulties.

Since then, Go! Go! Nihon has proudly helped more than 13000 people from around the world fulfill their dreams of living and studying in Japan. The service is offered in seven languages and has grown to include study in Korea (Go! Go! Hanguk), study in Spain (Go! Go! Espana), Study Trips, and online courses.

2021
During the border closure Go! Go! Nihon launches https://educationisnottourism.com/ to drive awareness and to lobby the government to support international students to reach their goal of living and studying in Japan. The lobbying contributes to the borders re-opening for international students.

We continue to add online courses for different levels, allowing more people to access the opportunity to learn Japanese. We reach over 8000 registered users.
2023
With the help of a new improved website, we supported over 1800 students to live and study in Japan in 2023, bringing our total to almost 13,000 since we launched our business. To further promote our growing list of vocational schools and universities we launched a new service schoolsinjapan.com which purely focuses on continued education options in Japan. We also held our most successful year for bespoke study trips to Japan, hosting groups from schools and universities in Germany and Australia.
2010
The service and website is launched with Italian, Swedish, and English language support. There is an immediate positive reception to the service and the first long-term students start the October session that year.
2012
The team decides they need a real office. They find a perfect location in Nishi-Waseda, Shinjuku in Tokyo and get back to assisting students. The team expands to four full-time staff to support the growth of the service. Our first ever Go! Go! Nihon Study Trip Summer Course is launched.
2014
With the help of the four support languages, Go! Go! Nihon reaches a milestone of helping 500 students since it launched. The Study Trip Summer Course becomes wildly popular, with 80 students from all over the world joining the course to experience three exciting weeks in Tokyo.

Go! Go! World now has more than 50 employees from 21 different countries and helps more than 1600 students in a single year across Japan, South Korea and Spain. Go! Go! Nihon adds a seventh market - Portuguese - after increased customer demand. Its first mobile app is launched: https://gogonihon.com/en/hiraganaquest/
2020

We launch an online learning platform japaneseonline.gogonihon.com to help those unable to travel to Japan to start their language learning journey. We launch seven unique Japanese language courses and see over 4500 people from more than 100 countries register!

Our Team

Our team comes from over 28 different countries!

Davide Rossi

Davide

CEO

Davide came to Japan in 2008 to study Japanese. At that time, there wasn’t a service like Go! Go! Nihon and it was extremely difficult for him to choose the right language school, accommodation, and get familiar with the different culture. He decided to start Go! Go! Nihon to help more people to have the best experience of their life and to come live and study in Japan.

Fede

Country Manager

Fede first came to Japan in 2010 and couldn’t keep away, officially moving from Italy to Japan in 2014.  He launched our first Japanese study trips and has been helping grow the business ever since. He now manages all of Go! Go! Nihon operations.

Annie

Coordinator Team Manager
Annie fell in love with Japan during her first visit as a teenager and she eventually moved to Japan in 2016. She started at Go! Go! Nihon as a Student Coordinator supporting English-speaking students and later became Manager of the Student and School Coordinator team. Her team’s mission is to help as many students as possible realize their dream of living and studying in Japan.
