Short Term Study Abroad
How about trying out our short term study abroad course?
- We have 1 week, 2 week, and 3 week courses.
- Students will come on a tourist visa
- Available in both Tokyo and Osaka/Kyoto area.
Learning Japanese will allow you to explore Japan and understand the culture on an even deeper level, so we offer Japanese language courses in the mornings. We also have courses for complete beginners, so those with no Japanese experience can enjoy Japan for the first time.
You will stay in the heart of Tokyo, at a hotel with easy access to anywhere in the city.
We are also working closely with our partner companies in Europe and are actively making new contacts around the world.
We welcome anyone that wants to enjoy and learn more Japanese and experience Japanese culture.

One day Trip
Kawaguchi Lake is the best spot to see the beautiful Mt. Fuji. (2 hours from Tokyo by speed bus)
Mt. Fuji is beautiful in all four seasons. In the spring, it can be seen with the cherry blossoms, in the summer with the rich green leaves, in the fall with the autumn color leaves, and in the winter with the snow.
For lunch, we will try the regional cuisine called houtou, Japanese traditional noodle.
Let’s go visit Little Edo in Kawagoe! (30 minutes from Tokyo by train) Koedo, literally “Little Edo”, is named so due to its many historic buildings from the Edo period. There are many sightseeing spots, nice restaurants, and shops.
For lunch, there are many options, such as an unagi (eel) meal or sweet potato based dishes. Let’s take a trip back in time and enjoy a bygone era of Japan!
There are many famous temples, shrines, monuments, and the great Buddha bronze statue. Kamakura is a very popular location as it has both traditional Japanese elements and modern attractions like shopping. It is known as the ‘eastern Kyoto’. The ocean is also very beautiful. For lunch, we plan on going to a famous soba kaiseki restaurant, which is in a traditional and gorgeous Japanese-style building.

Hotel Asia Center of Japan
The Hotel Asia Center of Japan is located in the heart of Tokyo. It is a very good home base to explore Tokyo. Areas such as Omotesando and Toyokawa Inari shrine are walking distance from the Hotel. You can feel the history and modernity of Japan. It is far from the bustle of the city, and it has a lot of green, making it a relaxing, quiet hotel. (Our Japanese classes will be held in the meeting rooms at the hotel.)
