Principal’s Message

  • Principal’s message

    Welcome to ARC Tokyo Japanese Language School.

    We founded Incorporated Educational Institution ARC Gakuen in October 2017 based on our school philosophy, developing human resources and social contribution through Japanese language education. A from ARC means Articulation, R means Realization, and C means Contribution. These contain our wish that students realize their dreams and goals and grow up to be a person who can contribute to society in articulation with people and society.

    Each student has various purpose for coming to Japan and studying Japanese language, such as going to further education, getting job, experiencing culture and so on. Fluent communication with using Japanese and active social participation are necessary to realize your goal in Japan. In our school, we provide Japanese language education with focusing on cultivating communication skill in Japanese. We hope students use Japanese, connect with Japanese society, think and learn by themselves and self-actualize.

    There is no greater delight than if students who study Japanese language in our school become a bridge between their home country and Japan as a member of multicultural coexistence society.
