Tokyo Galaxy Japanese Language School is located within five-minute walk from Tokyo Metro Kayabacho station, in the central area of Tokyo, in Chuo-ku. The surrounding area has been developed as the business and financial center, while remaining the historical atmosphere of Edo era , as represented by Nihonbashi, a famous bridge as the starting point of Edo Five Routes and Tokyo Stock Exchange. This peaceful environment and our own solid eight stories seismic proofed building approved as an educational facility by city of Tokyo enable our students to focus on studying at ease.
Established in 1986, our school is highly regarded in many countries for our excellent curriculum. My ideal formed through long years of involvement in the teaching of Japanese language, our excellent teaching staffs who help realize it, and the passion and fortitude of the students who have been seriously engaged in the study of Japanese language here, these three forces coming together formed our school today.
It’s most distinguishing characteristic is the diversity. Our primary concern is the balance of students’ nationalities and our curriculum which suits students’ purposes.
I could guarantee that we offer classes that could meet the needs of all students such as academic advancement, career related training, or cultural experience. Organized by our experienced coordinators focused on maintaining the high standard, all the classes are taught by qualified teachers, some long time veterans in the filed, some young and highly trained, joining forces to give students their best.
I am sure that you will find the most effective and satisfying academic choices which best suit all your needs, here at the Tokyo Galaxy Japanese Language School.＜/p>
The word “Galaxy” in our school’s name is taken from the word galaxy in English.
This word embodies our hope that each and every one of our students, through learning Japanese, is able to shine brighter in the great “galaxy”. We hope to support you in every possible way so that you may make the first step toward your bright future.
