The advantage of Hokkaido in Autumn

You can see the vivid reds, yellows and greens of fall leaves in many local places. Within Sapporo city itself, but also within the local countryside, the scenes are spectacular and attract visitors from all over the country.
The climate in Hokkaido autumn is also refreshing and cool. It’s the best season for many sports, activities and studies as the weather is cool enough to be active, yet still fine enough to spend long days outside. The seasonal food in Hokkaido is also delicious! Hokkaido boasts many local seasonal ingredients in the autumn, such as local salmon, oyster, crab, potato, pumpkin and so many more!
There’s so much to choose from!.


There are many unique reasons that JaLS courses are
perfect for your Japanese learning needs.

Because we limit our class sizes to a maximum of 8 students per teacher, you are guaranteed to get the care and attention that you need to improve your Japanese skills quickly and intensively.

Because of our flexible style, regardless of your level, you can begin on any Monday and graduate on any Friday. You can even study for as little as 1-week and make the most of your time in Japan.


Because of our full and active school community, there are plenty of activities and chances to make local Japanese friends and enjoy your life in Japan.

In order to improve your Japanese conversational skills within a short period of time, we focus on three main areas – practice, speak and use! The classes at Hokkaido JaLS are designed for a maximum of 8 people in each class. This way, our teachers are able to coach our students individually, giving you plenty of chance to clarify doubts and practice Japanese. After class, students are encouraged to use Japanese actively out of school and on the streets of Sapporo!
