J apan Cultural & Travel Information Centre (JCTIC) was initiated in year August 2000, as an approach in promoting language, tourism and the culture of Sabah and Japan with the hope that it will be of benefit to both foreign and local people alike. The initial main objective of JCTIC was to provide useful services to both foreign and local people, giving them the opportunity to experience cultural exchange and tourism between Japan and Malaysia. Various language and cultural teaching programmes were setup for it's purposes.
Currently, only our 'Japanese Language Teaching Faculty' remained. Japanese travellers looking for travel information in Sabah are still welcome to look for us as we may have local staffs that might be able to assist providing free information on travelling in Sabah. JCTIC used to operate at a larger scale in the beginning, enabling us to conduct various activities like Ikebana, Tea Ceremony, Go classes, Origami and many more. Today we only offer 'Japanese Language Classes' to those interested as well as preparing students for JLPT exams.

Equipped with 2 classrooms & native Japanese speaking teachers. We also have a productive teacher:student ratio of 1:9 to ensure greater learning experience.
