enjoying the beauty of Saga together for over two decades

We created eigokobo, originally an English language school, in March of 2000.  Our school evolved to include international homestay, outdoor events, vegan cooking, art and yoga.


In 2018, we will reach a decade of also being a yoga center - the first of its kind in Kyushu.


We hope our efforts raise the comfort, calm and kindness in our community.
