OLJ Language Academy

Located in Shinjuku, we are one of the largest Japanese language schools in Tokyo.

School Highlights

  • Focus is on Japanese for daily life

  • Lots of communication and group work in class

  • Right in the middle of a student town which is also the setting for Astro Boy

"@Gaijinpot: A great location in the student hub of Takadanobaba means good coffee, cheap food and plenty of chances to make Japanese friends."
