YAMASA II Campus Center

YAMASA II is the main campus building where most of the lessons are taught. It is located within 7 minutes walk from JR Okazaki train station, close to the Okazaki city center, shops, restaurants, banks and many other service facilities.

All our staff members and teachers works here. This makes quick replies to the student's requests possible.


There is plenty of space reserved for students who would like to do review after lessons and self study.

Heating in the winter and air-conditioning in the summer provide a comfortable environment for study.

Spacious classroom and desk space

Our classroom space is larger than the requirements of The Association for the Promotion of Japanese Language Education (APJLE). Desks in all classrooms are set in the U shape layout providing a learning space where lessons can be carried out in a harmonious atmosphere between the teacher and students.

At Yamasa we do not have the small Tokyo palette style of desk. Instead we have spacious desks providing enough space for dictionaries and study guides resulting in a efficient space for learning.


Internet Access

Students can connect their wireless devices through enterprise grade wireless network to the Internet. The connection to the provider is realized by 100 Mbits fiber-optic backbone line.

In the entrance lobby there are 2 computers which can be used for free by students, who do not bring their own wireless devices. The lobby is open on weekdays and Saturdays.
