Why we like Genki Japanese and Culture School
We love Genki Japanese and Culture School because they have FOUR locations: Fukuoka, Tokyo, Kyoto, and Nagoya.
Originally the school owner opened their school in Fukuoka in Kyushu Island. Because of the school’s popularity, they decided to open their Tokyo, followed by Kyoto and Nagoya. Through their program, you can learn not only the Japanese language but also its culture. There are many activities where you can experience traditional and modern Japanese cultures.
During your stay in Japan, it is possible to experience several GENKI school campuses while traveling. For junior or younger students, the Fukuoka location would be ideal to have a more local feeling. Fukuoka is also one of the biggest cities in Japan. Kyoto is of course a great choice if you want to experience the traditional atmosphere of Japan, and from Kyoto, you can also go to Osaka and experience both traditional and new Japan. Genki School’s staff are very energetic and friendly.
