京都国際アカデミーについて

Principal's Message

In 2013, Kyoto was ranked as NO.1 city by the World Tourism Organization because of its rich history in culture, many beautiful scenery, traditional couisine and industries, and good education environment. And students from many countries gather here at Kyoto International Academy to learn.
Our school is located near Kitano Temmangu shrine, where the god of literature and knowledge is enshrined. Just about 10 minutes walk from the school, there is the Kinkakuji Temple (Golden Pavilion Temple), where many visitors from inside and outside of Japan come to visit. All the visitors are attracted by the blooming of cherry trees in spring and red leaves in autumn. The surrounding environment is quiet and clean.
Along with the best study environment, our teachers and staffs are also the best helper for your study abroad. They will do anything to help students improve their Japanese skills, and always think positively, be helpful for students, but sometimes be strict. That is our school motto.
