About Fukuoka

Fukuoka is located in the northern part of Kyushu which is an island in western Japan. Though a modern city, Fukuoka is surrounded by natural mountains and seas and offers great comfort of living. Compact and convenient, the city is the gateway to areas throughout Japan and major Asian cities via the Fukuoka Airport located just 10 minutes away from the Hakata Station nearest our academy. From the Hakata Station, you can also take the Shinkansen to Osaka, Tokyo, and other locations in Japan.
While Hakata has engaged in foreign relations from long ago, it treasures its proud history and traditions. Tonkotsu ramen (pork stock noodles), motsunabe (hot pot of pork or beef tripe), and fresh seafood are part of the rich food culture that attracts many people in and outside of Japan.
Furthermore, the people of Fukuoka are open and friendly, so international students who may feel disoriented at first are sure to be welcomed with great hospitality. That is why Fukuoka is a pleasant place to live and the perfect city for your studies abroad.
