Message From Representative

The city of Amagasaki is a very convenient place, just outside of Osaka and between Kobe and Kyoto. With low rents and many small businesses nearby it is very easy to live and shop here.

Recently, this city was rated as the Best City in the area. I agree. Since I was born and grew up here in Amagasaki, I remember the good old days when it was known as the Industrial Capital of Japan. While most of the factories have moved out, I would like to see Amagasaki city again blooming with life and energy. This time with the new cleaner industries of education and high technology. The area where my school is located is full of kindness. We open our doors now to share that spirit with the world. The local shopping streets are full of promise for international students. Come join me.

The cost of living in Amagasaki is among the lowest of the region. All around there are signs of reform and development. I am, therefore, planning a region project with talented international students to revitalize the region. I think that if international students and local residents live and work together it will be mutually beneficial. It will help Amagasaki play a more important role on the world stage. I hope you will come join us in this project. While acquiring Japanese language skills you will also be participating in the opening up of Amagasaki to the world.


Message From Principal

“AMA Japan College was established in April 2019 to promote regional development.

While you are studying the Japanese language with us, you will be a member of our community, with the opportunity to experience our customs and culture.
You will find that there are many new things to learn besides the language, however.
You will enjoy living Japan to its fullest, we believe, by engaging in as many of them as you can.
It is our hope that you will then take what you have learned from your time with us in Japan, and apply it towards your long-term educational and employment goals.”
