Japanese Language Institute of Sapporo

The language school Japanese Language Institute of Sapporo was founded in Sapporo, Japan in 1986. Japanese Language Institute of Sapporo is on the North Island of Hokkaido, part of the wonderous country of Japan. There are two things that Soporro is famous for and these are its mountainous activities and its fabulous beer. Mount Okura Ski Jump Stadium is just 30 minutes by bus from the school, for those wanting to give this extreme sport a go. If relaxing with a cool beverage in your hand is more your thing, then look no further than the Sapporo Beer Museum, a former brewery of the area, a simple 45 minutes from Japanese Language Institute of Sapporo by public transport. Japanese Language Institute has good transport links close by, with the well connected Maruyama Koen subway station just over a 10 minute walk from the premises, the perfect way to explore all that the city has to offer.



The school was founded in 1986, and has over 30 years experience of teaching Japanese as a foreign language. The school offers both a short term and a long term course as well as a 3 week intensive course for the summer months. The school motto is “your dreams start in Sapporo” and where better to experience the 4 seasons of Hokkaido than attending a course in one of the oldest language schools in the area.


The school address is: 2-7 Nishi-26 Minami-6 Chuo-ku, 064-0806 - Sapporo, Japan (see on map)

Additional information
Other comments: I haven't experienced the course at the Japanese Language Institute of Sapporo as a very fast paced course. I still had a lot of free time which I really enjoyed! I was able to make many friends and have a lot of time to hang out with them while enjoying my stay in Sapporo.
The teachers are very enthusiastic and the lessons are always interesting. There is always a mix of talking and theory classes, so that is very neat!
