As a language school owner myself, I can safely recommend Coto Japanese Academy. Both their 101 lessons AND intensive courses are first-rate, their teachers are kind and highly professional and their facilities are comfy and conducive to studying (common areas are greatly appreciated). I intend to repeat the experience when I go back, that’s a no-brainer! Link to this student’s full review on Google.

I have been coming to Coto Academy for group and then private lessons for over 7 years now – highly recommended. All teachers and staff are extremely professional, passionate about what they’re doing, and caring. Link to this student’s full review on Google.

I didn’t know any Japanese while living in Japan and my speaking, reading, and comprehension of the language grew so much while taking classes at Coto Japanese Academy. I liked that it was a flexible schedule as I worked full time and I was still able to grow and develop as a student here.
The receptionist staff are so kind, helpful and so kawaii (๑˃̵ᴗ˂̵).
Coto Academy、本当にありがとうございます😊 Link to student’s full review on Google.


I have nothing but good things to say about Coto.  Taking their business course helped me in my daily work in Japan. It has allowed me to live my life more fully in Tokyo.

Course Details

Speaking Sessions

Practice your Japanese speaking through an informal free talk conversation with a Native Japanese speaker.

(Half the price of regular learning sessions)

Speaking sessions are a way to practice Japanese with a native Japanese speaker.

You can use the Japanese that you already know to have informal conversations.

We recommend speaking sessions for students who:

  • Do not live in Japan - but would like to practice speaking with a native speaker.
  • Want to increase their conversational fluency through practice.
  • Enjoy learning by doing through output.  The more you speak - the better you will become!

For those interested in speaking sessions please fill out the contact form at the bottom of the page.
