About us


Nowadays, more and more numbers of international students are going abroad dreaming of playing an active role internationally. However, we are now facing an unprecedented pandemic and in the world of post-Covid-19 there will be more people interacting across borders and also creating new values. Looking ahead to such a globalized society, Koubun International aims to develop human resources who will lead the coming generation.  
On a different note, Shinshiro City, where our school is located, is blessed with beautiful nature and cost of living is more affordable than in big cities, so you can concentrate on your study abroad life in a calm educational environment.
In daily classes, students are trained to acquire the four Japanese skills “listening, speaking, reading, and writing” in a well-balanced manner. We hold small classes to improve your comprehensive Japanese communication ability.  Teachers always help students to give them better understandings.  We also have seasonal excursions, cooking classes, and events to experience traditional Japanese events. You will naturally acquire language skills while enjoying them.

You may face difficulties due to your first time being in Japan, but each teacher will look after and offer you support from daily life to career guidance for after graduation so that you can have 2 years of fulfilling study abroad life. We will do our best to support and cooperate with each student to unlock and maximize their potential. I hope that you look at the future that can only be obtained here and lay the foundation for further evolution.

Masashi Kato, Principal

Philosophy and Purpose of Education

The numbers of people of foreign nationals that come to Japan have increased amid the years of internationalization. With the following decline in Japan’s birthrate, it is considered that this pattern will continue with years to come.
But the problem we face today is that many people of foreign nationals and the Japanese cannot communicate with each other. With this in mind, we must put our effort into teaching Japanese to as many people as possible. It is important that Japanese culture be understood, and the amicable relationship with Japan be maintained.
By establishing the Japanese language school we hope that a contribution to the world and the community can be made. We also hope that by offering an educational environment in a close-knitted community, one will have the chance of participating in community events that cannot be experienced with life in the city.


I think that studying another language is not limited to studying the words of that country, but also its culture and way of thinking. I eagerly await your enrollment.

Mr. Kato, Chief Instructor

‘One World One Family’ that’s my favorite words.  There are many foreigners living in Japan, but it may be difficult to adapt to the different new cultures. I believe that you will come one step closer to your big goal from learning Japanese. Take one step at Koubun International.

Mr. Toyosaki, Teacher

It is said that there are approximately 300,000 international students currently living in Japan. Why did they decide to come to Japan? It is probably because they believed that coming to Japan to study would certainly be beneficial to their life, and wanted to make their dreams come true. Wouldn’t you like to come to Japan and take the first step to make your dreams come true, too?     

           Mr. Watanabe, Teacher

It is hard to live abroad but more than that it will be wonderful experiences that will help you grow more. Of course, you may feel uneasy, but don’t worry. We will help you realize your dreams and goals. We are looking forward to seeing you.

Ms. Katase, Teacher
