Enjoy Learning, Enjoy Life

Our Japanese language school started as a group of volunteers in 2000 with one goal in mind: to help create cultural and language barrier-free lives for our students in Japan. Since then, we’ve expanded our schools to 3 locations (our Tokyo and Yokohama Japanese school) and launched our own textbook Nihongo Fun and Easy.

We've helped more than 8,000 students achieve their Japanese learning target. Now, we want to see you grow, too. We tailor our lessons depending on your Japanese needs, be it for JLPT, work, or just everyday life. From foundational basic and intermediate (N5-N3) to business Japanese (N2), we match your learning needs comprehensively.

Partnering with you, we offer a free consultation and level check to determine your level and suggest a fit-for-you course.

I’ve been to several Japanese language schools in and around Tokyo and Coto is definitely the best for my focus; speaking and reading. I’m very satisfied and would recommend the school to anyone.

The staff and teachers are super nice, friendly, and helpful. I really enjoyed attending classes at the Yokohama location. The textbooks given are easy to understand and help you progress. Teachers remember little details and help you learn vocabulary applicable to your life. The Yokohama lobby has awesome snacks and drinks as a bonus! I […]
