Japan: KCP International Language Institute, Tokyo


Founded in 1983, KCP International, located in Tokyo, Japan, is recognized as a leader in Japanese language education. It is well known for its Japanese language and cultural immersion. KCP serves about nine hundred students per year. All instruction is in Japanese, but English-speaking staff provide extensive language support, including special tutorials, for US students as they learn the Japanese language. Semester students enroll in twelve credit hours of Japanese language. KCP offers cultural immersion through lectures and organized excursions. The Civilization and Culture course, taught in English, includes lectures that lay the groundwork in topics like Japanese classical entertainment, customs and lifestyles, business and economics, politics, history, and religion. Visits include trips to Kamakura, the Asakusa Temple, Nikko, the Edo-Tokyo museum, and Kabuki and Banraku theaters. In addition to Japanese culture and civilization classes, all KCP students can participate in optional activities such as the tea ceremony, anime, manga drawing, and many more.


KCP is located in Shinjuku, the business, entertainment, and shopping center of Tokyo. It is a fifteen minute walk from the Shinjuku Gyoenmae subway station.


The College Consortium for International Studies (CCIS), a partnership of colleges and universities—two and four year, large and small, public and private, domestic and foreign—encompasses the broad spectrum of international higher education. CCIS members sponsor a variety of programs, notably study abroad programs and professional development seminars for faculty and administrators, which are designed to enhance international/intercultural perspectives within the academic community.
