SCHOOL INTRODUCTION

KICL is a school for only serious students. The rigorous and fast paced program at this school will assist you in mastering the Japanese language faster than other programs that we offer. Come ready to study!

SCHOOL INTENSITY

High intensity means you’ll be spending the majority of your time outside of class studying and reviewing class material to make sure you can keep up with the high pace of the class. This is best for students that are serious about mastering Japanese and want to potentially move onto either higher education or potential full-time employment.

WHY USE GO! GO! NIHON?

WE HAVE THE EXPERIENCE

We have helped over 6,000 students come to Japan since 2009. Most of our staff have been language students at the exact schools that you are looking at, so we can give you first-hand information on the application process and potential issues.

HIGHEST CHANCE FOR ACCEPTANCE

Our staff are native English speakers, so nothing gets lost in translation. The schools use us to translate cultural and language barriers, so we can make sure your application for the school and visa is perfect.

OUR SERVICE IS FOR YOU

We are here to tell you all the ins and outs of each school and let you choose which one you think would be the best for you. Your success in Japan is our success.

School Location

Kyoto

Kyoto is arguably the most historically and culturally rich city in Japan. With great numbers of amazing temples, shrines, and other places that will give you great inspiration, there is no better place for someone wanting to fully experience traditional Japan. With 1.4 million people and more than 30 universities, Kyoto is one of the leading academic cities in Japan.

Kyoto is not all about historical things though. It is also home to several modern technology companies like video game giant, Nintendo. Despite being a "small" city compared to Tokyo, you will enjoy both ultra-modern and traditional shopping districts as Kyoto locals are just as fashion-aware and updated as Tokyo residents. If that's still not enough, Japan's third largest city, Osaka, is just about 30 minutes away by train.From Yokohama station, you can reach Tokyo or anywhere in Kanagawa prefecture with relative ease. Also within the city of Yokohama, you have Minato Mirai, Chinatown, and beautiful Yamashita Park.
