My job is to ensure you have a pleasant experience studying Japanese. I do my best to support students in obtaining a Certificate of Eligibility and student visa, opening a bank account, looking for a part-time job after arriving in Japan, preparing documents for university or vocational school, finding a job in Japan, and so on. The teachers and staff at UNITAS will always treat students in a friendly manner. If you have any concerns, please come to our office and talk to us!

I am also in charge of students from Myanmar, India, and Thailand. I travel there on business or conduct interviews online. There are so many documents required to obtain a student visa, and they must be carefully prepared, but I will do my best to support you here too!

I look forward to meeting you all in Japan!

Graduated: Waseda University Graduate Program

Current position: Director of the Educational Department, UNITAS Japanese Language School Tokyo

Studying Japanese is like obtaining a passport to expand your possibilities. The more you study, the more opportunities you will have. Each year, many students enroll into UNITAS to fulfill their dreams of studying in Japanese universities/graduate schools, or working for Japanese companies. At UNITAS, you can study not only the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) and Examination for Japanese University Admission for International Students (EJU), but also Japanese language to avoid problems after entering a Japanese university/graduate school/vocational school, and Japanese to enjoy communication with Japanese friends. I majored in Japanese language education in graduate school and have taught Japanese to nearly 3,000 students at universities and Japanese language schools. The students I have taught have fulfilled their dreams in Japan and in their home countries, making use of the Japanese they have learned. Please let me help you make your dreams come true! I look forward to meeting you all!


New Zealand

Current Student at UNITAS Tokyo

After graduating from college, I worked as a banker in New Zealand for 8 years and then moved to Shanghai where I worked in the banking and leasing industry for 15 years. When things started to settle down, I decided that I wanted to study in Japan, a country I had visited more than 20 times as a tourist.

Among the numerous Japanese Language Schools, I chose UNITAS, a school run by Teikyo University.

After actually enrolling in UNITAS Tokyo, I found that the class atmosphere was good and the experience of studying with students from different nationalities and cultures was very enjoyable. I was also impressed by the support I received from the staff, such as career counseling. I am currently working hard to find a job in Japan after graduation. If you are considering studying in Japan, please try to give your all in both study and play when you come to Japan. Also, don’t keep your worries to yourself. Please consult with the school staff, parents, and friends about your career path, such as higher education or employment.



Current Student at UNITAS Tokyo

I was interested in Japanese literature, so I studied Japanese language and literature at a university and graduate school in Ukraine, where I obtained N2 of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test. I studied for one year in the Master’s program at Aoyama Gakuin University in Japan. However, I had a strong desire to further improve my Japanese language skills, so I decided to study at UNITAS. UNITAS Tokyo is located in the center of Shinjuku, which is very convenient for travel in any direction. The school also provides exceptional support for its students, such as introducing me to part-time jobs when I had just arrived in Japan. My goal after graduation is to work in the education industry in Japan. To achieve this goal, I would like to study hard to pass the N1 of the Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) in parallel with my job hunting. If you are contemplating studies in Japan, I strongly encourage you to come. Life in Japan is really fun! The food is delicious and Japanese culture is unique. Studying in Japan will make your everyday life exciting.

I loved Japanese anime since I was a child, and would binge watch Japanese anime on TV after school when I came home. At the time, my brother, who also loved Japanese anime, and I vowed to go to Japan someday. When I was 24 years old, I finally fulfilled my childhood dream of visiting Japan, a dream of mine since childhood, and stayed there for a month. After that, I visited Japan 12 times over the next 4 years, and I decided that I wanted to live in Japan. So, I chose Unitas, which had a high reputation on the Internet, and realized my dream of studying in Japan. The teachers here are very hardworking as their reputation suggests, and I am enjoying studying in a comfortable environment. After graduation, my goal is to use my experience as a chef to get a job at a major Japanese restaurant company. If you are thinking of studying in Japan, of course it is important to learn Japanese from textbooks, but you should also try to make friends and experience Japanese culture through your body and mind, not just by studying at a desk. It will open a whole new world for you.

In today’s world, learning a foreign language is a must. Japan has one of the world’s leading car industries like Germany and there are many mechanical engineering students who want to learn Japanese, but I always wanted to go to Japan because I spent my early teens watching “Crayon Shin-chan” and “Doraemon.” And after studying Japanese in India, I was finally able to enroll in UNITAS. I am currently studying for the JLPT N3 level with great teachers and friends, and learning Japanese while experiencing a new culture is a very enjoyable experience. I am really satisfied with the classes at UNITAS because there is a good balance between grammar and kanji. Also, the teachers take good care of their students and talk a lot with us. The staff at UNITAS helped me find the part-time job I have now after school, and now they are helping me find a job after graduation. After graduation, my goal is to work for a Japanese automobile company.

I was lucky to have chosen UNITAS to study in Japan. Before I came to Japan, my Japanese language skills were not good enough, but the teachers at UNITAS pointed out all my mistakes in my essays and daily conversations with a sense of good humor. I also had many opportunities to speak Japanese, which greatly improved my Japanese language skills and gave me confidence for the examinations. I am especially grateful to Mr. B. I applied to three different schools during the preparation stage, and he helped me revise all of the interview tests and research proposals for each school.

At the University of Tokyo, I have met many exciting people. The professors are very enthusiastic and give a lot of advice for our essays. It is a difficult time due to the Coronavirus pandemic, but the laboratory is full of great joy.

After graduation, I would like to work for a Japanese company. My challenge is to improve my business Japanese language skills and to understand the Japanese way of thinking. In the future, I hope to be able to return to my home country and demonstrate my abilities.

I had known about Japan since elementary school through manga, and after graduating from university and working with Japanese people in Vietnam, I gradually fell in love with Japan until it became my dream to visit the country. When I finally had the opportunity to visit Tokyo on vacation, I was so impressed by the city and the kind people that I decided to study in Japan.

I chose UNITAS because it is a well-known Japanese language school with a long history. The tuition fee is reasonable, the quality of education is high, and the school has many enthusiastic teachers. There were many classes that exposed me to Japanese culture, and I had the opportunity to visit many interesting places.

After graduating from UNITAS, I worked for a Japanese company and now work as a school employee for UNITAS. I really enjoy my life at UNITAS, both as a student and as a staff member. No matter where I go, UNITAS will always be a place of wonderful memories I will never forget.

I hope to support you all with the experience I have gained here.

I look forward to meeting you all.



Graduate of UNITAS Tokyo

Currently: English After School Child Care-worker

I had visited many countries around the world as a cabin attendant for a Middle Eastern airline, but I was fascinated by the Japanese culture, food, and safety, and I wanted to live in Japan. And in fact, since I came to Japan to study, every day has been filled with joy. There are students from different countries with different cultural backgrounds at the school, and there are many things to discover just by walking around the streets of Tokyo. After graduating, I am currently working as an English staff member at an after-school child care center in Yokohama. And I have passed the JLPT N1. There is a reason why I was able to pass the N1 test, even though I could not speak Japanese before I came to Japan to study. At first, I thought I would learn Japanese in order to work in Japan, but gradually I learned that there are opportunities in Japan for those who can speak both English and Japanese, and I was able to understand the culture from the Japanese point of view by learning from books and textbooks, reading newspapers, watching TV, and talking to people. Now, learning Japanese is really fun and has become my number one hobby.



Graduate of UNITAS Tokyo

Currently: Working at Nihon Ryugaku Center

Two trips to Japan inspired me to study Japanese, and I studied at UNITAS for a short term, but after returning to Russia, I was too busy with work and could not devote enough time to my Japanese studies. So, I decided to study at UNITAS again, this time as a long-term student. I would like to tell you about my life in Japan while studying at UNITAS. Studying was interesting and I always enjoyed it. The staff were kind and supported me in my daily life and part-time job. My favorite teachers were Mr. K, Mr. S, and Mr. H. No matter how busy they were, they made time for me. I really appreciate them. I also made three good friends at UNITAS, and we still see each other.

After graduation, I got a job at a Russian company in Tokyo, and now I am supporting students from Russia who want to study abroad. In the office, I speak Russian and Japanese every day. In the future, my goal is to use my current experience to establish my own company.
