Language is essential for effective communication with one another and it is a city to the building of which every human being brought stone. Any language has its own beauty and tradition, so does the Japanese Language which inherits similarities to our Indian Languages. The seeds of our Japanese Language School were sown in the year 1973 by our Founder Chairman, Mr. M. R. Ranganathan, who is also President of Nihon Technology Pvt. Ltd . His vast experience with the Japanese clients has helped this school to function in a novel way.
