I love that the school is in the heart of Tokyo and that all the classes are in Japanese. Since the classes are taught only in Japanese it pushes me to study more.

I think the best aspect would be how quickly the class moves. Also, activities that allow students to meet native Japanese speakers is a very good idea (i.e. the curry class). I would actually rather have more events like this even sacrificing tour-type excursions because meeting native speakers and befriending them can open up far more opportunities.

Angela from Summer Short 2012

Definitely a good choice for anyone who is serious about learning Japanese thoroughly and at a fast pace.

Seamus from Fall 2014

I learned more in 3 months here than I did in probably the equivalent of 2 years in the US. All the teachers I have had thus far have been great, and the students are all nice and very self-motivated. It is a very good atmosphere.
