Tokyo, the capital of Japan, is an immense metropolis, vibrant and full of surprises. It has about 13 million inhabitants, 10% of the entire Japanese population, which makes it one of the largest urban centres in the world. The central zone is the most densely populated part of the metropolis; it overlooks Tokyo Bay and is sub-divided into 23 special districts, including the administrative centre of Shinjuku where the Metropolitan Government is situated.
Situated in Shinjuku, the most “in” district of Tokyo, with its big, fashionable department stores and neon signs, this is a school to suit every student. It offers more than 25 classes with ability levels starting from beginner and reaching advanced. The course centre consists of 26 comfortable classrooms, a computer room, a library, a study room, a large student common room, various snack and drink machines and free Wi-Fi. We welcome students from more than 50 different countries. This is the ideal place to practice Japanese while making international friends.
To discover Tokyo you must first explore the heart of each district, starting from the city centre with the Imperial Palace and Ginza, the most famous luxury shopping area in all Japan. It’s an extremely important economic centre and also one of the oldest districts in Tokyo. Of the other districts, we recommend Roppongi, well known for the Roppongi Hills (Where the Mori Tower skyscraper that overlooks the city is located,); Asakusa, a less chaotic part of the city where you can still see girls walking around wearing kimonos and numerous rickshaws on the streets; Shinjuku, favourite shopping destination of the locals; Shibuya, without doubt one of the most lively and well known areas of the city ; Aoyama, one of Tokyo’s most elegant districts; and Ueno, a cultural focal point with its museums, sanctuaries and temples.
