What is INSPIRE Tokyo?

Inspire Tokyo is a series of curated talks, interactive events, and podcasts given exclusively in English.

Our Origin

Inspire Tokyo was created by Kikokushijo Academy—an after-school int'l school for returnee and bi-cultural students—to create more chances for young English speakers to engage with the language in a meaningful way.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide young, bilingual students with the opportunity to watch, listen, and engage with leading figures in science, the arts, education, business, and politics. Our goal is to inspire tomorrow's leaders by helping them discover new interests and possible paths for their futures.
