Welcome to Kyoto JaLS!
A warm and family-like school
offering life-changing opportunities.
Kyoto JaLS specializes in short term Japanese language study. We have won numerous awards since our establishment in 2012, combining professional Japanese tuition and our ethos that each student should have the most valuable experience possible whilst studying in Japan. We use intensive and practical language study alongside a variety of activities and cultural experiences to welcome and support all our students in a warm and family-like atmosphere. It is our desire that all students would feel at-home in Japan, able to return to study in the future, and have a wonderful and deep experience of Japanese culture.
Make friends from across the world! Annually, students from over 30 countries join us, and almost every global area is represented. At Kyoto JaLS, students can make lifelong friends and be a part of a strong, vibrant, international community.
Whatever your age, you are welcome at Kyoto JaLS! We accept students aged 14 and above, but we have no upper age limit. Every year we see multiple generations able to study Japanese together and enjoy their life in Japan.
We also see a good balance of male and female students studying with us across a variety of Japanese levels. We welcome those wishing to study with friends or family, alongside students who are traveling to Japan by themselves. JaLS is the place to be part of a great community!
