About US

We are a company that is actively developing cram schools that offer private tutoring in the Kyushu and Shikoku areas.

Having been involved in education since 1979, we have worked hard so that children may receive better educations for their own futures.

Our newest path to realizing that goal is to open English conversation schools throughout Japan, in order to improve the English proficiency of Japanese people. We hope to work with people from the Philippines, the model of ESL learning, to create a wonderful program together.

How about beginning your career in Japan with us?


Listen and Speak:

[Usable] English Education

In the past few decades, it has become common to hear the word “global” in Japan.

However, in actuality only a handful of Japanese people can truly use English, which presents a large problem. In addition to the “reading” and “writing” that has been focused on up until now, we aim for a future in which many children can also use “listening” and “speaking” skills to tackle the world with their own power.

Message from CEO


Greetings everyone, I am Koji Nishinaka, and I have an exciting announcement to make!

You all now have the opportunity to seek employment in Japan via this portal site. We are initially seeking English teachers.

It is essential to improve the English proficiency of Japanese people in order for our companies to survive in the competitive international market, in addition to meeting the expectations of being an international tourist destination country.

Our head office is located in Kagoshima, which has deep connections to La Salle, and we have enjoyed various exchanges so far.

Our goal now is to work in cooperation with the La Salle Group in the Philippines to provide wonderful English education programs for Japanese people.

I also hope that through this opportunity, you will be able to experience and understand Japanese culture and create deep friendships.

I look forward to seeing you in Japan!
