The nine-classroom school will be the company’s third in Japan, and is set to open in June 2019. Similar to GenkiJACS’s other schools in Fukuoka and Tokyo, the Kyoto institution will be located in the city centre.

“Kyoto is a world-class destination, and an incredible city”

“We’re really excited to show our new Kyoto school to everyone,” GenkiJACS director, Evan Kirby, said in a statement.

“Kyoto is a world-class destination, and an incredible city. When added to our current schools in Fukuoka and Tokyo, this lets our partner agents offer schools in all the major areas of Japan. Students are welcome to travel the length of the country, studying with GenkiJACS everywhere they stop!”

Homestays, guesthouses, dormitories and private apartments will be available to students, while the school will offer a full program of social and cultural activities.

GenkiJACS offers a range Japanese language training courses, from tourist survival classes to long-term classes at its Tokyo and Fukuoka schools.

The Japanese language travel industry saw an increase of 25% in the number of students enrolled to learn the language in 2015.

According to the latest JASSO survey, as at 1 May 2018 over 90,000 international students were enrolled in Japanese language schools.
