The Facilities


In addition to the quality of our programs, another key factor that will be absolutely fundamental in determining whether you are successful in learning Japanese is the quality of the facilities. It is these facilities that provide support for you and enable you to concentrate your valuable time on learning. No Institute invests the way Yamasa does in ensuring that our students receive an ideal environment for learning Japanese in as much comfort as possible.


The modern Okazaki campus has spacious new buildings such as the 5 story Yamasa II building and accommodations such as the purpose-built Student Village. These provide our students with a higher comfort level than found in most Institutes and Universities in Japan. Compared to most Japanese educational institutions, Yamasa's more spacious 'western' size classrooms provide the space and comfort you need to be able to concentrate on your studies. All students at Yamasa have desks - there are no writing palettes attached to chairs where you need to balance a dictionary on one knee while trying to write your notes. The extra space means that you never sit in rows - all classrooms are arranged with the desks in a U-shape to assist participative learning with teachers. All of the facilities have western style amenities in the bathrooms and lounge areas. Also note that Japan's summers are hot and humid, while winters are cold and windy. Studying Japanese can be hard enough without distractions. The modern buildings mean that you don't have to suffer from drafts and all of the classrooms are air-conditioned/heated for your comfort.
