The advantage of Kyoto

Kyoto has many exciting events such as Gion festival, Gozan Okuribi, and other traditional festivals held in various places during the summer.
Preparation begins months in advance of the Gion Festival, which starts with the Gion music performance.
Kyoto comes alive with a variety of events in the summer. On the terrace called “Yuka(Floor)” which is built along the Kamogawa river, you can enjoy your meal while being feeling the cool waterside breeze.
Kyoto summers tend to be hot, which makes traditional ways of avoiding the heat all the more enjoyable!


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!

At Kyoto JaLS, students get many chances to use Japanese outside of the classroom. Every day, we have a mini event for JaLS students, staff, students from local universities, and working adults from Kyoto to meet, interact and have fun together. 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!

Learning support

Students who choose not to take part in after class activities are free to study in our café lounge. Teachers are available in the staff room to answer your questions. We hope this will aid you in your studies!

Exchange session with local Japanese

It is important to talk Japanese with the teachers, but if you get a chance to speak with other local Japanese, it is a good practice too. During your stay in Japan, Kyoto JaLS’s exchange session will help you make friends with Japanese people.
