Why study at J International School in Osaka?

Education Designed With Diversity in Mind
Over 500 students from over 60 countries study Japanese with us and it is very difficult for students of varying nationalities and Japanese levels to study Japanese at the same time. However, at JIS we have several class levels: beginner, intermediate, advanced, and super advanced. We take great care to offer the best educational experience possible while also keeping our students' nationalities and individual abilities.

Confidence and Community
We host a number of school events throughout the year. Between the opening and graduation ceremonies, we make active efforts to strengthen the bond between our students and staff through recreational and educational activities on and off-campus and our sports festival. We also strive to help students be more aware of their individual progress and triumphs through regular assessments, speech contests, and practical Japanese classes.

Welcome to our Japanese Language School in Osaka!
