Since its opening in 1983, the Tokyo Foreign Language Academy Japanese Language School has been striving to provide Japanese language education in order to produce human resources who can play an active role on the global stage.
On the occasion of the 40th anniversary of its founding in 2023, it was reborn as the Maruwa Gakuen Educational Corporation Tokyo Foreign Language Academy Japanese Language School.
We will continue to work hard on Japanese language education with the goal of developing highly sensitive human resources who can contribute to the future.


Chairman of the Board Masaru Wasami

The founding philosophy of Maruwa Gakuen Educational Corporation is to spread the Japanese language throughout the world and to create a diverse, harmonious society through correct use of the Japanese language.
Maruwa Gakuen accepts students from all over the world, providing opportunities to study Japanese correctly and helping students to achieve their dreams of entering Japanese institutions of higher learning. To this end, we place great importance on creating an environment in which students can enjoy a fulfilling study abroad experience. We will do our best to support you as you pursue your dreams.
The world is truly a global society, and although national borders exist, it is impossible for any country to manage human exchanges, economic activities, or environmental problems on its own. I am certain that learning Japanese will expand your opportunities to play a role in the international community. I hope that young people from around the world will deepen their intercultural exchange through their studies at our school and, as suggested by the phrase “the joy of encountering others,” they will cherish human connection and become a bridge between Japan and the rest of the world.
