The number of foreigners coming to Japan is increasing again!!

To our regret, the earthquake that struck in March and the tsunami and nuclear power plant accident that followed led to a drastic temporary reduction in the number of foreigners visiting Japan... But, take a look at the figures below. Statistics released by the Japan National Tourism Organization (JNTO) show that the number of foreign visitors to Japan is increasing steadily again!

MonthArriving VisitorsComparison with Preceding Month
March 2011352,666-
April 2011295,826Decrease of approximately 57,000
May 2011 358,000Increase of approximately 62,000
June 2011 433,100Increase of approximately 75,000

'I want to go to Japan to study Japanese. But...' You may feel a similar kind of hesitation. But we hope you will abandon your anxieties, come to the Human Academy Japanese Language School, and try to ascertain the current conditions in Japan with your own eyes. Japan is united in working toward revival. We are sure you will have the good fortune to see a newly energized Japanese society and meet Japanese people who are better than ever.

We look forward to meeting you in Japan!

Words from the Winners:

Interview with Ms. Oh Kanna (Korea)
Q: How do you feel about winning a scholarship?
A: I’m really glad to receive the scholarship, though I was very surprised, since I hadn’t expected to be selected.
Q: Can you tell us the key to your selection as a recipient?
A: Actually, I’m not doing anything special. But I believe the efforts we make little by little will bear fruit sometime. Let’s all keep on working together.
Comment by Mr. Cho Yusung (Korea)
In addition to attending classes, I’ve been studying at the library or at home every day. Daily attendance and test results are the most important factors.
Comment by Ms. Kou Yahuei (Taiwan)
I prepared and reviewed materials for classes during breaks and after school without fail. I think studying with a firm purpose is important.
Comment by Mr. Wang Guanyu (China)
As you can see, I attended classes every day and devoted every spare moment to my studies, even during breaks between classes. When I had questions, I asked my teachers immediately. I also studied by watching Japanese animation films.

We wish to congratulate the winners of this term’s scholarships. And remember, those who were unable to receive a scholarship this time still have many chances in the future. The key is to study hard while taking care in your daily life. We are always here to support you!!
