Go! Go! Nihon



Since 2009, Go! Go! Nihon has helped over 8000 people come to Japan. We offer free support for student visa and language school applications, as well as accommodation support, in eight languages to give more people than ever the opportunity to live & study in Japan


Students First

Founded by students and created for students, we have over 10 years’ experience helping people to live & study in Japan. We offer the most up-to-date information about Japan, schools and accommodation options, and immigration rules, along with continued support to ensure our students have all the information they need to make the best, and safest, choice for them.

Multi-lingual Support

We have a team of our own highly-knowledgeable, multilingual staff based in Tokyo. Most were previously Go! Go! Nihon students themselves, so they understand what you’re going through. We communicate with the schools for you to overcome any language barrier and successfully process your application. We keep our students constantly updated to make sure you have accurate and up-to-date information on any immigration entry procedures that arise due to COVID-19.

Easy Online Process

Our online platform is an easy and secure way to upload documents, check records, share information and ask questions. We use it to share updates about the application process, schools, accommodation and any other information that helps you make the best choice for you. We also keep you updated about the steps you need to take before and after your arrival in Japan.


All students that apply with us and then later need to delay due to the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) will be able to move all their fees to a following term. Get in touch to discuss your options.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: I’ve already applied but what happens if I can’t travel to Japan due to the impact of the virus in my country?

A: We understand that the situation is developing and changing on a daily basis. If you have applied to come but due to measures such as a lock down, or Japan temporarily stops accepting entry for people from your country which mean you won’t be able to attend the school term you originally selected, we have worked with our partner school to ensure that you will be able to move your application to a later term using the fees you’ve already paid, there may be extra documents required such as an updated photograph. Contact us here for more information.

Q: What happens if the Japanese Language School I apply to cancels their lessons?

A: All of our partners ensure that if they close for any period of time due to the pandemic they will offer online or back up lessons to cover any timeframe of the closure.

We always keep all of our students updated in case of changes that affect them due to the evolving nature of the pandemic situation.In the unlikely event that a school decides to cancel a whole term without any option to study at all, they will either refund your fees or move them to another term of your choosing.
