What is Edo Cultural Center?

Edo Cultural Center was founded in 1984. Since then, more than 10,000 students from over 70 countries have completed our courses and contributed to the international atmosphere of Japanese language school. The world is changing rapidly; communication ability between people becomes a very important measure. Edo Cultural Center is not only teaching Japanese language but also providing a place for meaningful cultural exchange to our students.

Meaning of Edo Cultural Center

Japan’s current social infrastructure started to take shape during Edo era when “Genroku”, a magnificent and dazzling aspect of Japan’s culture was at its zenith. Today Japanese people are often described the current cultures, traditional customs, arts and fundamental social characteristics began to take root during Edo era. We therefore named the school “Edo Cultural Center” with the hope that many would acquire a deeper understanding between “language” and “culture” of Japanese people, who are generally regarded as being mysterious and often incomprehensible in the eyes of non-Japanese.
