Due to the strict procedures of Japanese immigration, we are unable to assist students from countries not listed in the MOFA exemption list.
If you do have dual citizenship and hold another passport, please enter those details and try again.
If you’ve had a chance to look around our site you may already know a few things about us but here’s a little background in case we’ve not met you yet and you’re wondering if you should apply through Go! Go! Nihon.
We were established back in 2009 because our founders wanted to study Japanese in Japan and had found it pretty difficult to make the move. They wish there’d been someone to ease the process and help them understand what they needed to do without all the hassle and confusion. So they started Go! Go! Nihon from a coffee shop. Since then we’ve helped over 5000 people come to Japan and we’re still going strong.
We’ve expanded our services to include both short-term and long-term study, accommodation support, and even part-time job support.
So where do we fit in? Go! Go! Nihon is actually part of Go! Go! World. Having helped loads of students come to Japan, we realised there was the same need elsewhere. The umbrella of Go! Go! World covers Go! Go! Nihon, Go! Go! Hanguk, Go! Go! España and Studytrip.com. Each branch helps students who want to study long-term in Japan, South Korea, and Spain and if you can’t afford a long-term trip Studytrip.com offers 2-4 week trips in each of these locations that combine language study and cultural activities. They’ve even recently expanded into Taiwan and England and hopefully even more locations this year. Each year we help around 1600 students travel to these countries to study abroad all over the world.
So why should you choose us? We know there are a couple of organisations that offer similar services but we’re a little different and here’s why.
The variety of things we can help you with is so broad it needed its own section.
Here’s what we’ll help you with:
This one’s an obvious one, we partner with our favourite schools across the country to give you the best choice.
We work with accommodation agencies in each of the cities we have schools in to provide a selection of accommodation ranging from dorms to share houses to some private accommodation
We partner with Japanese companies to provide you with easy to access sim and wifi deals with a discount. As you might have seen from our other article about Sim cards it can be a little tricky to navigate.
We provide you with the advice to pick a decent bank account and understand what you’ll need to do to set one up.
If you’re studying long term you’ll need a residence card and need to know what to do with it once you have it. We’ll guide you through the process.
We don’t just cut you loose once you’re here. We help you get settled in and more importantly meet other students as well as locals. For each intake we hold an orientation party with useful talks, a goodie bag and drinks and food to help you settle into your new life.
Events in Japan
We hold lots of exciting and interesting events throughout the year in Japan, so you’ll have a great chance to get out and try new things.
