With a variety of courses, a central location, and some of the best support for students, at Japanese Communication International School (JCIS) you’ll fit in no matter what your goals for studying Japanese are. One of the best parts? You’ll get to study in the colorful, kaleidoscopic city of Osaka known for its friendly locals, fashion and vibrant regional culture.

Another thing Osaka is famous for is the food. Dubbed the “Kitchen of Japan,” it’s a tradition to “kudiaore” or “eat until you’re bankrupt” while here. Studying at JCIS you’ll have plenty of chances to try beloved regional dishes like takoyaki and okonomiyaki, as well as kushikatsuteppanyakikitsune udon, ramen, and kaiseki cuisine. Phew!

JCIS is part of the Kokusai Tsushinsha Group, which runs a variety of services that can be used to help improve the daily lives of the students. They can use their business connections to help students to find part-time work while studying, or to help you find full employment after you graduate.


This course equips students with all the skills they need to find a full-time job and start their career in Japan. You’ll be introduced to internship opportunities as well as the chance to connect with relevant people in your chosen industry.
