Reviews - Kudan Institute of of Japanese Language & Culture

Kudan Alumni

I am very grateful to have been able to study in Kudan, and thanks to the school I made many good memories in my first year in Japan. The teachers and other employees were very nice and paid a lot of attention to my needs (and mistakes), so I still remember with care many smiles.

Google Reviews

They have done a great job in teaching. Different teachers have different teaching styles. I went there twice already so I am pretty familiar with most of the teachers there as well as the staff. I still remember the school principal said that the reason why we could be here as a community arises from 縁 meaning the destiny or luck that brings us together.
