Study Japanese in the tropical paradise of Okinawa.




Learning Japanese in a stunning tropical paradise sound like a good time? ICLC Japanese Language Institute offer short to long-term comprehensive courses right in the heart of the sunny southern island of Okinawa. Study grammar while learning how to scuba dive or practice your kanji before a session of Ryukyu karate – you’ll improve your communication ability while being immersed in a deeply-rooted island culture that is unique to this part of Japan.

ICLC has welcomed students from more than 40 countries since it opened its doors in 1983. Years of teaching experience have allowed us to develop a specialized program where students discover the Japanese language through a combination of classroom and cultural study.

True to Okinawan hospitality, ICLC also organize special events throughout the year, including beach parties, speech contests and school trips to local attractions.

Whether you’re a student, a working professional or visiting Japan on holiday, lessons are designed to cater to different needs. We’ll also help students with finding a part-time job to fund their studies and securing a university placement or job after the course.

ICLC are open to all requests from students regarding course content, activities and other enquiries. We look forward to welcoming you to our school.
