  • TCJ: A school that offers industry-leading education

  • Our aim at TCJ is to provide a foundation for every student where they can achieve a comprehensive understanding of Japanese language and culture. TCJ offers a wide variety of school activities throughout the year to supplement students' cultural appreciation. These meticulously planned events may be incorporated into daily classes or in the form of a school trip. Furthermore, TCJ is one of the few schools that has a Japanese teacher training course. Consequently, students have a unique opportunity to interact with Japanese students who are studying to become teachers. This kind of communication with ordinary Japanese people will surely give you a different perspective on Japan as a whole. Come join us and study alongside students from over 40 different countries.
