Facebook Review

"Thank you ISI Takadanobaba for one year of studying, I really had a lot of fun studying Japanese at this campus and I will do recommend this school to my friends or family who wish to learn Japanese."

Language Course

"My course was very short, but I really liked the support of the reception and other staff of the school. They were really friendly and ready to provide me all lesson material and answer my questions. Lesson material (vocabulary) were provided in my native language, that's very nice and helpful. I also liked that the teachers were able to explain difficult things in easy Japanese.
