Fukluoka is a city of 1.5 million people located in Southern Japan. Fukuoka is regularly chosen as one of the best cities in Asia, with beautiful beaches just minutes from school! Fukuoka is famous for the friendliness of its residents and a very popular tourist destination for Japanese people. Prices are a lot cheaper than other cities like Tokyo. For example lunch at a cafe in Tokyo often costs JPY ¥800 but in Fukuoka it can cost from JPY ¥500.
Besides the activities included in the course, the school may offer a variety of excursions, including an overnight stay on a farm, a day trip tour of Nagasaki or a weekend trip to the world’s biggest caldera for example! The local staff also runs barbecues, visits to local festivals, and more, depending on the season. For example, they regularly visit Mt. Aso (the largest active volcano in Japan), Nagasaki, a pottery workshop for hands-on practice, and a soba noodle workshop.
