Asahi International School was established in Harajuku, Tokyo in 1973  Then from the year 1981, we've devolved into Japanese language education for near 50 years. As a member of the Association for the Promotion of Japanese Language Education (Nisshinkyo), Asahi International School was the first authorized Japanese school as No. 87-1 which could apply for the Certificate of Eligibility for the overseas applicants.  
       Asahi International School locates in a city named "Kashiwa" in Chiba Prefecture which has a population of about around 400,000. Many foreigners resident here because of its convenience of transportation towards the downtown of Tokyo. Joban Line, Tobu Line, and Tsukuba Express Line run through Kashiwa city and provide a rapid way to go to Asakusa or Disney Resort in about 30 minutes.
       Kashiwa is a cultural city where Tokyo University, Chiba University, Tokyo University of Science, Reitaku University, and Nishogakusha University placed their campus.
    Asahi International School is about 5 minutes walk to the Kashiwa station, surrounded by secondary schools and cramming schools. Almost all the students of Asahi live in some convenient spots around the school. All the teachers here are professional Japanese educators with skills and concerns about students. We provide test-preparation lessons as well as the ordinary Japanese language lectures with a strong back up from experienced teachers who were engaged in the editing of "JLPT Bible"--Kanzen Master N1, N2 grammar, and kanji.
    We are making exertions to provide our students safe surroundings to focus on their studies. We have dormitory accommodation (a limited number of rooms). In addition, there're loan-based scholarships for those who are willing to work as caregivers in the future. Besides that, to encourage the students, we grant the students who pass the N1 or N2 of JLPT during their study here an incentive on their graduation ceremony.
    In recent years, Japan has made remarkable progress in economy, science, and technology. International activities have become increasingly active, and communication between Japan and other countries has become more popular than before. As a result, more international students and business people come here for further study and a business chance. Therefore, the problem of “language” comes into our view. It is the most important issue for us Japanese who are isolated from the world due to economic frictions but for all foreigners coming to Japan to learn Japanese culture.

       Asahi International School has been endeavoring to develop global human resources and create a place for international cultural exchange through Japanese language education for foreigners.

       From now on, Asahi Kokusai Gakuin will continue our educational activities aimed at understanding the true form of language under the motto “Acquisition of Correct and Practical Language.” We want to be a bridge connecting countries, cultures, people, and hearts with the word “word” as a keyword.
