HISTORY of the SCHOOL 

The transfer of the Embassy of Japan from Makati to its new chancery in Roxas Boulevard in 1997 brought an end to the 28-year existence of the JICC-Nihongo Gakko (Japanese Language school of the Embassy). After a careful selection process, then JICC Director Sususmu Tanaka eventually requested the Philippines-Japan Friendship Foundation, INc. (PJFF) to continue its work of promoting Nihongo education in the Philippines, this time under Filipino management, control and direction. Thus in 1997 the PJFF organized the Nihongo Center Foundation, Inc. (NCFI), the corporate vehicle that will continue the work of the JICC-Nihongo Gakko. Nihongo Center or NCFI carried with its name the legacy of Nihongo Gakko as far as the excellent nihongo training is concerned.
