The advantage of Hokkaido

Hokkaido Japanese language school is located in Sapporo which is the 4th largest city in Japan. Sapporo is the city where even Japanese want to live the most. The season from June till August is particularly good.
Apart from Hokkaido in cities like Osaka and Tokyo June is the rainy season when it’s hot and humid. But Hokkaido doesn’t have a rainy season and the summer is pleasant and refreshing which allows you to concentrate on studies.
Compared to the rest of the Japan where July and August is hot Hokkaido’s weather remains cool and even in the hottest summers the average temperature is 22 ℃. This environment allows you to concentrate on your Japanese studies.


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

Small Class

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.

Flexible Start

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!

It’s a great way for you to practice Japanese and make new friends!

We strongly encourage our short-term students to participate in the after-class activities. By speaking to our volunteers in Japanese, your language skills will advance rapidly and you will be able to enjoy speaking Japanese!
