Genki Japanese and Culture School

The language school Genki Japanese and Culture School was founded in Tokyo, Japan in 2013. Our school is located in the heart of Shinjuku, Japan's most exciting place! Hundreds of restaurants, bars, karaoke bars and more are within walking distance. Despite this, the school is an oasis of calm, as it is situated within the grounds of the famous Hanazono Shrine.

The school address is: Hanazono Building 3rd floor Shinjuku 5-17-6, Shinjuku-ku Tokyo, 160-0022 - Tokyo (Japan).
