@Gaijinpot: "Tokyo Cocoro puts their heart into teaching practical real-life Japanese you can immediately use outside of your class."

Tokyo Cocoro will help you get the confidence you need to speak Japanese fluently.


True to their motto “let’s learn Japanese that you can actually use”, Tokyo Cocoro Japanese Language School is a conversation-based school with a curriculum that focuses heavily on speaking and immersing yourself in the culture of Japan while learning the language. 

Like their school name hints at —Cocoro translating to “heart” in Japanese, the school’s awesome team put their hearts into their educational policies, from staff training to inclusivity and cultural awareness in their communication. The school itself was created by Japanese language teachers getting together and making the kind of school that they’d always wanted to teach at and knowing exactly the kind of experience students are looking for. They will warmly welcome you, support you through your stay, and help you grow and gain confidence speaking Japanese.

Tokyo Cocoro’s team provides assistance with getting settled in Japan, finding accommodation, part-time jobs and more. 

Studies move at a comfortable pace to make sure students have plenty of time to practice what they learn and to make room for all of the extra-curricular activities you’ll be going to, and there are plenty of events during the year for students to learn Japanese culture and try out traditional activities. For those already living in Japan, the Summer Course provides a chance to level up your skills quickly.

Located in a quiet residential neighborhood, Tokyo Cocoro can boast to be a mere 12-min away by train from Ikebukuro, one of the busiest and most popular districts in Tokyo. Despite being so close, the Itabashi neighborhood is quiet and quaint, with plenty of local stores and cheaper rents than you would find in the busier districts. Loved by international students, you can enjoy it’s unique and quirky atmosphere and all the cool places that the area has to offer during your studies.
