This program is the stepping stone for College graduates who aim to build a career or pursue extensive studies in Japan.
This is a summary of my entire experience in Tokyo, Japan. From September 2019 to May 2021.The Japanese are fast, efficient, and hard-working. They make food, shopping, housing, and transportation convenient and reliable with plenty of choices for me to choose from. Processing legal documents and other matters were fast but complicated. The locals are kind and attentive until they find out that I’m not Japanese. Then they became silent and distance themselves from me, but they did help me to the end.During the pandemic, safety practices are not strictly done. Many people, locals, and foreigners do not wear masks, and sometimes, they spit and litter anywhere. What a shame. The trains and buses were still crowded. Same with shopping centers and markets. But concerts and other events were canceled.I was alone most of the time but there was never a dull moment. There are soo many places to see and soo many things to do. Even with the pandemic, many of the places that I want to go to are still open for business. I’m soo glad about that. I visited some of my friends who have been living in Japan for a long time. I learned a lot from them. I will never forget those places and those faces.When it comes to my studies there, I failed badly. I gave it my best but it was not good enough. I did everything they told me to do but I failed to meet their expectations. This happened to me before when I was in college, so it’s really just me. The school is an excellent place to learn Japanese and the staff really do support you to the best of their abilities. Big thank you to Mr. Saito. Its location is near the train station and convenience stores. The facilities and study materials are complete and reliable, but it’s too serious and academically demanding for me. I have no hard feelings towards them. Most of the time, we are in our classrooms taking lessons. There were little to no extracurricular activities that would make our studies more fun. Despite not getting good grades nor a scholarship, I feel fine because I get to experience school life in Japan. A lifelong dream fulfilled. I miss the school and the staff. I will visit them again someday.As for Jellyfish education, I highly recommend them. A perfect 10/10. They guided me from the beginning to the end and it was a long and hard journey. They stayed true to their services and went the extra mile to make sure that I have a successful enrollment and a life-changing experience in Japan. And they introduced me to great people like Mr. Hoang of ST housing. He helped me in my most dire of situations like when I was about to lose my dorm and my things. Big thanks to him and to everyone in Jellyfish education. What began as an advertisement poster is now an overwhelming and unforgettable memory. Thanks again God bless all of you.
Leonard Young: TIUJ-October 2019
Since we were young, we admired Japan for its rich cultural heritage and wanted to learn its language. We were introduced to the “Study in Japan Language Program” of Jellyfish Education Philippines. Through Jellyfish, we were admitted as students to the Human Academy Japanese Language School that has opened a rare opportunity for us to be able to learn and understand the Japanese language. This also becomes our gateway to understand and experience the Japanese culture, to interact and communicate with Japanese people. and their society as a whole. We aim more to learn as it becomes more interesting each time attending our classes as we gear towards hurdling the different levels of proficiency examinations in the days to come. Also, we were able to meet and make friends with Japanese people and other foreign nationalities and had a chance to travel to different beautiful places here in Osaka and its nearby Prefectures. Thanks to the staff of Jellyfish Education Philippines for their indulgence, for their clear instructions as we were preparing our documents, their time and dedication in making sure that everything is correct and complete. The staff was always available if we have questions and inquiries. They have guided us from the start of the application until the time we arrived in Japan despite the pandemic. Through and thanks to Jellyfish as we foresee a brighter future and the opportunity to be competitive, qualified, and have the chance to further study or work in the field of Health care here in Japan.
Since back then I really wanted to expand my knowledge about the language and especially for the culture of Japanese. For what reason? Since the number of Japanese tourist are now increasing day to day, there is no doubt that nearly in the future, our place, Philippines could be occupied with businesses owned by Japanese on that moment with my knowledge I get from my studies I could lend a help. It is also part of my goal to learn the Japanese language since I look forward to do business with a Japanese client here in our place in the near future.

My mother really wants me and my siblings to finish our studies;Thus, I am grateful that I have an aunt living in Tokyo who’s willing to help us, giving me the chance to finish my study abroad while I am living with her. My aunt dearly loves me and is willing to support my dreams to continue my studies. I plan to take the preparatory course to pass the language and general course requirements.Next is that I plan to pass the N1 level of the JLPT because the course I plan to take requires background in technical terminologies. Afterwards, if I would be given the chance, I will pursue my goal is to continue my studies taking up Physical Therapy course in the prestigious Tokyo Metropolitan University.

Despite having a stable income in my business, I dream of expanding business into a Japanese business. We had this sort of Japanese cuisine subject back in our culinary school which inspired me to learn to establish my own Japanese restaurant in the future. In my place there are not much authentic Japanese restaurants. Also, I was advised that it will be the best to study to study the Japanese cuisine by my mentors in culinary school because of their unique way of preparing food and taste that somehow I cannot out into word to express how good the taste is.
