Summer and Autumn Course

Lesson Information

Autumn is one of the best seasons to visit Japan due to the mild weather and the lovely Fall colors. As to the last point, there are many reasons to visit Japan as the leaves change from green to yellow, red and orange! Norther Kyushu is especially beautiful this time of year, and people come far and wide to take pictures of the natural beauty of our prefecture! This offers a truly unique experience for those able to come to Japan during this time, and is highly recommended for those who want to study an intense curriculum in beautiful surroundings! 


The Autumn course lasts until the end of November! During that time, your lessons can begin on any Monday and end at any time - study for as long as you like!

Japanese culture places great importance on the changing of the seasons and on fleeting moments. One such example, momijigari, or viewing the autumn leaves as they change color, is a classic fall tradition.
