Living in Japan


When you are in any foreign country, you are going to experience some kind of culture shock. It is important to be prepared both physically and mentally when going abroad, and this is as true for Japan as for any country. We make it our job to ensure that you have all the support and assistance that you need while in Japan, whether you are a seasoned traveler, or this is your first trip abroad. Every experience is different, and every experience is unique. We try to make it the best experience it can be.

During your stay in Japan you may sometimes encounter difficulties and need advice. Yamasa is one of the few Institutes in Japan where counseling and support is provided by a full time team. Another important difference is that often it is the foreign staff members at Yamasa who provide much of the counseling. The teaching faculty members at Yamasa are all Japanese, however we recognize that there are times when you need to consult using your native language. At Yamasa there is a multilingual support team available to assist you - all of who speak Japanese and will speak to you in Japanese unless otherwise requested - but who are also available to assist you in your native language if needed.
