Daiwa Academy Co., Ltd., the founding body of Daiwa Academy, was founded in 1944.
We have mainly dealt with various packaging materials for building materials.

After nearly half a century of long-term management efforts, we moved to the real estate leasing business in 1992.
Currently, we are operating a group and own 3 commercial tenant buildings and 1 multi-storey car park.

In October 2006, we established the Daiwa Academy as a Japanese language school in order to respond to the changes in modern society, which is rapidly becoming internationalized.

We have set up "Graduate School Advancement Course", "University Transfer Course", "University Advancement Course", and "Business Course (Job Design Course)" with the aim of developing human resources who can play an active role in the international community.

Greetings from the president and school director

  • 1. High enrollment rate
  • 2. High employment rate
  • 3. High visa acquisition rate

Achieved"Three highs" of "High enrollment rate", "High employment rate" and "High visa acquisition rate" since its establishment

Currently, interest in Japan is increasing in various fields around the world. In an internationalized society, in order to interact with people from different cultures and collaborate in business, it is necessary to understand the culture and customs behind it, and at the same time to acquire etiquette and manners. I have. Therefore, at our school, we are not only teaching in the classroom, but also focusing on interaction with local people, aiming to develop human resources with a broader perspective and practical ability.

Since its establishment, our school has achieved "high entrance rate", "high employment rate", "high visa acquisition rate", "three highs". We will continue to think about school management that makes our graduates proud. I hope that you will be active as international human resources.

To students

"Don't forget your initial dream"
What made you interested in Japan and the Japanese language?
It may be a song, a manga, a game, etc., but please cherish that feeling anyway. Living in a foreign country is not easy, but when there are difficulties, remember yourself when you first became interested in Japan.
Our staff will act as your guardians in Japan and support your study abroad life.
Let's learn practical Japanese through interaction with Japanese people.

Greetings from the Vice-Principal


As you can see from the name, Daiwa Academy is a school that teaches Japanese. At school, we teach not only Japanese as knowledge of grammar, vocabulary, phonology, etc. in textbooks. We also teach practical Japanese that Japanese people actually use. We place particular emphasis on education on what kind of language, repeated, what kind of environment, what kind of purpose, what kind of effect, and what kind of nuance should be used to convey and express oneseft. Students are instructed to imitate facial expressions, gestures, movements, etc. when Japanese people speak, so that they can express genuine Japanese language. Even if you use one word, you have to pay attention to the meaning and nuance. Even if you use one sentence, you have to pay attention to intonation, slowness, rhythm and emotions. These are not easy to do at universities in China.

The school is also a guidance center for you to go on to higher education and get a job. We introduce graduate schools of various difficulty levels, such as national and private universities in Japan, depending on your actual level and wishes. From both class and tutoring, we also support the determination of research directions and specific research themes, the creation of research plans and the entry of reasons for aspiration, the search and browsing of documentary materials, and the preparation for exams such as written exams and interviews. For this reason, school teachers are actually your life planners.

The school is also your home abroad. Young people fulfill their desire to study abroad and come to Japan with an overflowing passion. That said, if you move far away from your hometown and your parents and come to a strange land, you will feel lonely. School faculty and staff will treat you like your, relieve your anxiety and help you get used to life in Japan as soon as possible. School teachers can be said to be your relatives.

I myself have been engaged in university education at home and abroad for a lifetime, and have always been in contact with everyone who came to study with the feeling and attitude of my grandfather. We sincerely look forward to your enrollment.
