What our students said about Fukuoka


Rating: 4/5

I was more there for the Japanese learning than nightlife and finding interesting things to do. I never used the bus or train system. I did walk 40 minutes to the zoo and the botanical gardens (both were the best I'd ever been to, amazing even).


Rating: 4/5

It has everything you would expect in a big city and is more easily organised than Tokyo. There are many options for afternoon trips, day trips and weekend excursions.


Rating: 5/5

Very interesting, well linked to other Japanese cities. Good food.


Most recent student reviews of language schools in Fukuoka

Meiji Academy

The Admin and Teachers were wonderful. They found me a nice place that was very, very convenient to the school (within walking minutes). The teachers patiently wrote all things in both kanji and hiragana on the board.
You couldn't find a better staff. You could improve on class structure however.

Meiji Academy

Pleasant atmosphere, everyone is very nice. There is a clear focus on speaking. Small classes so that everyone can/must actively participate in the lessons.

Good organisation the teacher adapted to the students. Afternoon activities are great fun but they charge 10000 yen = 65 euros.

Genki Japanese and Culture School

The relation with the teachers, though it is expected if we take into account the price of the course.
Not everything is perfect. Some things in the organisation are hard to understand. It is a school that accepts young students so some teachers should improve their methodology. But the teachers are eager to help.
