Representative greeting

Greetings from the head of the school

For a life as who you are

I appreciate you to have an interest in Aiwa Language Institute.
Since 1991, Aiwa Language Institute has been teaching Japanese to international students from abroad. Students from China, Vietnam, Nepal, Indonesia ... and from countries are studying at our school. It became a school where students are coming from all over the world.
It's a small Earth-like school.

We believe that learning in the classroom has limitations.
People are motivated to learn when they are interested and want to learn on their own. It is called self-learning. That self-learning will lead to independence. We believe when people achieved to learn independently, education for them will transform from merely school-based knowledge into something that are useful and applicable for their life.
It is important not only to attend the class, but also to be excited to grow by utilizing what we have actually learned.

We proudly have been conducting such education and have produced many graduates. They are all our school’s treasures.

We concern in conducting education that are specially match for your life. Only the pathway that you decided on your own will bring you a joyful life. We believe there are a lot of potential in you.
Let’s hone your potential at Aiwa Institute of Foreign Languages.

Events and Activities

Tour to the Public Facility


During the tour to the public facility, all students went to the Disaster Prevention Center. We learned from the firefighters what to do if disaster like fire or earthquake occurs. We never know when and where the disaster will occur. So, it is important for student to learn about what they have to do if disaster occurs. We learned this important matter in a fun way. It was a great opportunity for students since this kind of learning rarely conducted outside Japan.

Social Gathering


We all went to Huis Ten Bosch, one of the most popular tour destinations in Japan, on the day of the social gathering. We enjoyed taking pictures in this very beautiful place. We all had lunch together and took a group photo at the end. While returning to school by bus, many students said, “I want to come to this place again”. It was a wonderful experience for us.

Self-check / Self-evaluation

Based on the amendment of the School Education Act and the Enforcement Regulations of the Act in 2007, Aiwa School also conducts a self-check and self-evaluation based on the school evaluation system.
