About us

Our Purpose

Rainbow Bridges

We inspire curiosity in students, help them find happiness in growing and learning through communication in English, and enable them to connect positively to the global community—all in a manner conducive to them becoming lifelong active learners.

We do this through offering classes led by caring and skilled teachers in a philosophy of adventure, tapping curiosity in students leading to communication skills, and building a community that fosters meaningful experiences and lasting relationships with a global reach.

Our mission

Rainbow Bridges is an English language school that provides an educational environment that inspires in students curiosity about the international world and fosters their passion for learning and communicating.

An Unusual Origin for an English School

Rainbow Bridges English Academy is rare in that it was founded by two Americans—native speakers of English and dedicated teachers—who wanted to give back to the people of Japan and create an adventurous community of learning.

Our Vision

By developing open-minded, active learners who can thrive in English-language environments independent of the school, with lifelong positive attitudes towards challenges and the abilities to engage them, Rainbow Bridges builds a more sustainable, peaceful, and progressive world, one person at a time.

Core Values


Studying English is like a series of puzzles – a world of personal discovery.

Active Learning

We are dedicated to helping inspire motivation, initiative, confidence and self-esteem through active and enjoyable learning. In a controlled environment, our teachers set up achievable, step-by-step language targets in an appropriate sequence for maximum learning efficiency.

Cultural Awareness

We are furthermore committed to encourage awareness of other cultures, languages and peoples, and to engage them productively.

Inspiring to Learn

Moreover, we are devoted to helping students develop a love of thinking, wondering, questioning, discovery, and meeting challenges with creativity.
