Established in 1988 as a satellite campus for English majors from Showa Women's University in Tokyo, Japan, Showa Boston is a Japanese language and culture center located in the beautiful Moss Hill neighborhood of Jamaica Plain, Massachusetts. 

Since its founding, Showa Boston has taken on the role as a bridge between America and Japan, promoting global awareness, international understanding, and intercultural dialogue within and beyond the Boston community. 

We believe that culture and language are inextricably linked and are best learned in conjunction with each other. Our English-as-a-Second-Language classes combine skills with content-based instruction, taught in an immersion atmosphere with a communicative approach. Instruction is enhanced by interaction with native speakers, both on and off-campus. Through this integrated program of experiential learning, windows of insight open, stereotypes disappear and mutual respect emerges.  

Showa Boston also fosters accelerated personal growth and a broadened global perspective in its students. They are encouraged to take increasing responsibility for their own intellectual and personal development within a structured, supportive, and culturally sensitive framework. Students are given opportunities to gain confidence from the effort of mastering a different language and culture, to engage in self-discovery, and to learn mutual responsibility through group living. In a secure and healthy environment, we strive to provide students with a solid foundation of knowledge, skills and character to become active participants in the international community.
