Werlcome to NILS!

Established in 2003, NILS has hosted students from all over the world, including China, Korea, Nepal, the United States, Canada, Sweden, Finland, Hungary, Brazil, Ghana, and many other countries. We tailor the language program to suit your needs, making sure that you are truly comfortable with the language before you complete your course. If learning Japanese is what you desire, look no further than NILS.

We maintain a close relationship with the community so that our students in Japan will truly be able to experience the authentic Japanese lifestyle. By attending entrance and graduation ceremonies, the mayor of our city shows his respect and support for those students who have traveled from afar to learn his native language. NILS also has strong ties with the Ogori International Relationship Association which sponsors more events than do other cities. With these opportunities, our international students can experience true Japanese culture.

We hold a number of events at our school that the locals are encouraged to attend. Also our students can always take a quick thirty-minute train ride into Fukuoka City, a bustling metropolis where you can visit a number of important museums and sites. The city is also recognized for having produced some of the most successful music artists in all of Japan. A huge amount of talent and history is waiting to be seen in Fukuoka.

Fukuoka is Japan’s No.1 city to live,

visit and work as selected by business people!

Fukuoka City has also been ranked 10th in the World's Top 25 Most Livable Cities 2014, a survey conducted by British lifestyle magazine, Monocle, which focuses on business, culture and design. Affordable housing and elements of the city’s infrastructure, such as public transportation, were recognized.

Fukuoka City is a compact city with only a 10-minute travel time between the airport and downtown. The city’s rich food culture includes fresh fish and Hakata ramen noodles. The city has a rich and long history with many traditions. A wide variety of community events are held throughout the year in Fukuoka City and its vicinity. The city offers many cultural exchange events including annual events such as the Asian Pacific Festival and the Asian-Pacific Children’s Convention.

There is no doubt that Fukuoka is a most livable city for foreign nationals thanks to its kind and caring residents. Another appealing feature for foreign nationals is that the price of daily necessities in Fukuoka is much lower than those in bigger cities like Tokyo or Osaka, resulting in a lower cost of living.

Because there is no worry about contamination of food and water from the nuclear plant disaster of 2011, people live in safety and with peace of mind.
