Mr. Yoko Yamazaki
Old people believed the Ptolemaic theory that the earth is the center of the universe. But I was able to know the Copernican theory and the true form of the universe. Learning a language or culture that is different from your mother tongue will free you from the “centered world” and show you a new world.

Voice of current students
Mr. Guo, Hisao (China)
Japanese ability has improved,
I’m working hard to get a guide job!
A year has passed since I entered Shubayashi. For the past year, I have been studying with all the students in a good atmosphere.
I have improved my Japanese ability and daily conversation ability much more than before!
Now I’m studying to be a guide. I’m in the second year, and I want to learn more and more!
Mr. Ms. Wu (China)
Teachers are also kind,
You will also acquire interpretation and translation skills!
I chose to go to a sister school from Shurin Japanese School. The teachers are also kind and will kindly teach me not only Japanese knowledge but also points to be noted when interpreting and translating. Through a lot of practice, I have acquired the skills of interpreting and translation. I also enjoyed the fun classes outside the school.
If you are an examinee who wants to learn interpreting and translation, please come to Shurin Foreign Language College.
Mr. Haikou (from Shaanxi, China)
Shubayashi, who has a N1 level or higher, for job-related classes in Japan.
I chose Hidebayashi as my university destination because I wanted to be an interpreter specialist.
I have already passed the Japanese Language Proficiency Test N1, but I do not necessarily have enough Japanese and conversational skills to handle the job. International students who are considering employment in Japan need to learn about Japanese-specific customs and the mechanism of Japanese companies that students cannot see. For such international students, I think Shubayashi is a good school for students aiming for N1 or higher level, because it provides vocational classes mainly on languages.
Mr. Wu Yu (China/Heilongjiang Province)
Enjoy learning about Japanese culture, business and tourism!
I’ve had a great school life since I entered Shubayashi!
Shubayashi has a lot of fun at school. Teachers are kind to all students and always teach the problem in an easy-to-understand manner. At Shurin, you can study not only interpreting and translating but also Japanese culture, business, and tourism. Under the guidance of these teachers, my Japanese ability has grown significantly. I think it was really good that I chose Hidebayashi as my destination.
Interview with job-seekers
Zhou Dan (from Shanghai, China)
Loft Co., Ltd. (LOFT) General Manager (China Business Development)
When did you start job hunting?
――In June of the 2nd year, I looked at the vacancies posted on the bulletin board inside the school and started applying from the Internet.
Please tell me the whole schedule.
―― Online application started in June of the second year. Registered Hello Work in July and participated in the interview. Online application and briefing session participation from September to December. From January to February, I received a job introduction from a school teacher and Hello Work.
You continued your job hunting until you were just graduating, and you decided to be a loft. What is the decisive factor?
――Because I am very interested in stationery and miscellaneous goods. Since “Loft” has a wide variety of products, we often go to stores.
What were the difficulties in job hunting?
――Because I’m a nervous type, it was very difficult for me to PR myself during the interview. Also, clothes. I’m not good at suits and pumps…
What kind of employment support did you receive at Shubayashi?
――Interview practice, resume check, job introduction, etc.
What kind of employment support do you find particularly useful?
――Interview practice. The teacher gave us a mock interview and taught us how to assemble the story, posture, and manners during the interview.
Please give a message to your juniors.
――For job hunting, the most important thing is to continue without giving up!
“Loft” is a large company that operates in Japan and China. Please tell us about your future aspirations.
――I would like to do my best so that I can steadily advance and expand the business in China.
