Over the years we had several students that had memorable times at Meiji Academy. Either just studying Japanese language for a few weeks, engaging in cultural activities or doing a professional internship placement. Have a look for yourself what our students say about us.

Nolwen, 21years, France

Before I started my four weeks internship at a marketing company here in Fukuoka, Meiji Academy equipped me in their Business Course with all the basics of what to watch when working in a Japanese company. Professional teaching combined with small sized classes meant full attention on me.

Tobias, 23years, Germany

I was always fascinated about the ancient history and traditional arts of Japan. The cultural classes and social activities organized by Meiji Academy gave me the chance to experience the “real Japan” and immerse myself with the culture & people here.

Stephanie, 27years, France

While there were many other schools in larger cities such as Tokyo and Osaka, I was keen to experience the ‘real Japanese lifestyle’ by choosing a less known place for tourists. I was surprised what a large and vibrant city Fukuoka is.

Irina, 25years, Romania

I experienced Fukuoka as a very cosmopolitan, young and dynamic city with many international startup companies. It made it for me the best place to do my internship and also engage in further studies at a Japanese university.
