SIL Sapporo Nihongo Gakko:
Our warm and friendly school is based in Sapporo, north Japan. Sapporo is a metropolitan city of 1.89 million and the fifth largest city in Japan, is the governmental, economic, and cultural center of the prefecture of Hokkaido offering a wide variety of educational and recreational opportunities. What sets Sapporo apart from other major Japanese cities are its low cost of living and its small foreign language-speaking population. This is beneficial as it makes staying in Sapporo relatively inexpensive, and the necessity to communicate in Japanese reinforces classroom training.
