ISI International Study Institute


Since 1977, ISI Japanese Language School was established in Ueda City, Nagano, as a “private school” with the philosophy of contributing to the realization of people’s dreams and the development of international society by creating an educational environment for global human resources.

Our mission is to develop global human resources to be active on an international scale.

The Symbol of ISI


In the development of educational activities in the “world”, the “i” stands for “people” and the upward “S” stands for “growth” and “improvement” through “learning”. The other “i” is an encounter with a new “i” (person) that leads to an exchange and the growth of a new you.
ISI’s vision of “creating an educational environment” symbolises our philosophy of helping people in Japan and around the world to realise their “dreams”.
