ARC Academy

A Japanese language school with locations in Tokyo, Osaka and Kyoto.




ARC Academy was established in 1986 and since that time we have had students from over 50 countries study with us.

Since there are students of different mother tongues, the language used for communication will naturally be Japanese. This increases your opportunity to use Japanese and helps you improve your language abilities.

No matter which level you are at, we aim for you to be able to communicate in Japanese as best you can at your level. You can learn “functional Japanese” that can really be used in real life and at work.   We also have a variety of courses available for our students, whether your goal is to work in Japan, continue your education, or just take a study tour!



This is a course is for students who want to pursue a higher level of study in a Japanese graduate school, university or vocational schools. This is a necessary first step for those who want to get a job in Japan.
