The first Japanese language school to be recognized by the Ministry of Justice in the Chubu area. The “I.C.” of I.C.NAGOYA stands for “International Communication”. Their philosophy is to foster communication skills to help their students think and act with a global perspective in mind. They have been assisting students in studying Japanese for more than 35 years. During that time, students from more than 30 countries have passed through the gates and graduated.
