The advantage of Kyoto in Autumn

The way in which tradition and modernity, and city and nature are interwoven are said to be characteristic of Kyoto.
In the autumn, many visitors can relax while touring the temples, shrines and Kamogawa river shrouded with the rich colours of autumn foliage.
In addition, it is a real pleasure to be able to enjoy the delicious food of autumn in Kyoto, a city of gourmands where food from all over the country can be sampled. The chance to study Japanese while enjoying delicious food and overlooking the Kamogawa river should not be missed!


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 Kyoto 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 Kyoto!

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!
