KCP Study in Japan

Whether you choose to learn the Japanese language during one of these terms or customize your KCP terms, if you plan to enroll in an extended or academic year program (staying longer than six months), we strongly recommend that you (1) apply for your first term at least six months in advance, and (2) apply for a visa as well.

KCP has started offering many of its classes online, including our popular summer options. For more information on our online options, please click here.

Testimonials

Not only did I have a great time at KCP, but the improvement I’ve witnessed in my Japanese proficiency is astounding. I still can’t quite believe I’ve learned so much in such a short time. Although I’m sad that I’m leaving by the end of this term, I’ll always have fond memories of my time here. I am truly grateful to all the staff, especially the instructors, as well as my fellow classmates for making my time here exceptional. I highly and without hesitation recommend KCP International Japanese Language School to anyone looking to learn Japanese.
