Shibuya LALL

Shibuya LALL

The LALL Group's philosophy is "Live And Let Live", which means realising a society where young people and senior citizens can live together across generations. Until now, we have focused on activities in Japan, but our new vision is to "live together" with the international community, transcending race and nationality. By providing a place for young people from other countries to learn Japanese language and culture, we hope to deepen mutual understanding and develop human resources who can serve as bridges for international exchange in business and culture.
