I wanted to be in a major city in Japan and learn Japanese, and this program had good reviews online in addition to being affiliated with several universities that I knew of. There was also a decent amount of information available online from non-official sources, which gave me good information on living arrangements and general life as a student.

—Steffan Achtmann

I really enjoyed our small group conversations and working with the other students. We were able to talk to one on another about the topics learned in class, as well as get to know one another after finishing our prompts.

Living in Japan in itself is a great experience overall.

Stephanie from 2012

Students are from all over the world and we can only communicate in Japanese to understand each other.

Please understand that when the program says "intensive" that it is very intensive. It's not a selling point, but the actual truth.

Ashley from Spring 2018

If you do not know any Japanese going into the program, you might want to take a few classes before hand. I had two years of Japanese Language classes in college before I graduated in 2010, and that was baby steps compared to KCP. They really care about you learning the language, but it is fast-paced so be prepared!
