SCHOOL INTRODUCTION

Akamonkai is Tokyo's largest Japanese language school and offers many different types of courses to fit your needs. Be ready to study, as they have a strict and rigid, but effective teaching system. They are one of the few schools that offer a pre-university preparatory program for students with only 11 years of formal education, but wish to move onto higher education.

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.

School Location

Nippori

Nippori is a calm and quiet residential area in central northern Tokyo. It is home to a lot of convenient shops and restaurants, which makes it a great place for both eating out or bringing home food from the supermarket that can be found close to the school.

While being a generally inexpensive place to live in comparison to the rest of the city, it's still very well located since it is connected to the rest of central Tokyo by the Yamanote line. For example, you could easily reach Akihabara by train in only 7 minutes. Ikebukuro (13 minutes), Shinjuku (17 minutes) and Shibuya (29 minutes) are also just one simple train ride away, no changing lines!
