Message From The Principal
International Futurity Academy was established with the goal of building a bright future for all students in the academy. The teaching objective of the institute does not only orient students to use Japanese everyday or to enter university but also let students to have better understanding of Japanese culture, so they can gain strong communication skills in Japanese to thrive in cultural diversities.
I think the lives in school should combine both enthusiasm and family-like atmosphere but still maintain the strict learning for the students because of their future.
In particular, the Academy respects privacies and personalities of each individual student and also focus on guiding students personally, when necessary.
I hope what you learn at International Futurity Academy helps you to reach your goal and to have a successful future at international settings. I believe your success with your study and you can become like an ambassadors to connect your countries and Japan.
Hope that what you learn at International Futurity Academy will be useful and become a bridge between your country and Japan and also be able to reach out to the global.

Osaka is located almost in the center of the country, which connects many big cities in country at the Osaka port, and Kansai airport is the major hub airport for many international flights to other big cities in the world. Also Chinese ships frequently come by the Osaka port. It takes one hour flight to Osaka from Tokyo and about 2.5 hours by Shinkansen. Living cost in Osaka is much cheaper than in Tokyo.

We do not only set a goal to advance each students Japanese only for the academic purpose, but also assist students to develop their abilities to use Japanese on their work in Japanese companies.
Therefore, we offer well-balanced content of the lessons with the four skills “Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking”.
Additionally, in order to gain the learning efficiency for the students, we also organize fun activities such as field trips and many other events such as speech contest, exchange meetings, sports competition etc…so that students can interact with the actual Japanese industries, communities and cultures in real time with a lot of fun.
Lastly, to create a positive and bright future for each student, our school particularly respects for the students individualities and differences. To do so, each instructor organize orientation and (or) disciplinary sessions for the student privately, when necessary.
