Transform your future and inspire others with global skills learned from Japan, the land of courtesy

Do you need to gain the skills and qualifications to win globally, gain diplomatic skills and succeed, or improve yourself and live a richer life?

Or do you believe you could go further than where you are now, but are unsure what to do?

Or maybe you would like to master international protocol, international etiquette and intercultural understanding, Japanese culture and etiquette, or perhaps become an expert.

Whether you are an individual or business group, if this is your goal, you have arrived at the perfect place.

The Intercultural Protocol Academy of Japan (ICPA) provides guidance to individuals, companies and embassies in Japan and abroad on their global activities.

ICPA offers international education, international etiquette, international protocol and intercultural communication as universal skills for global success, and trains global specialists to work in the world as professional educators, and contributes to the globalisation of the world by training and supporting global companies.

In today’s information-driven and internationalised society, mastery of these skills is more essential than ever.

In this context, do you know why people at the forefront of the world study Japanese culture? Japanese traditions, martial arts and culture hide numerous keys that are necessary in the modern global society.

For more than 20 years, ICPA has been researching cross-cultural communication techniques and international rituals that form the basis of a global society. As a result, we have discovered that the roots of the international rituals that ICPA has taught from the beginning are the very philosophies and customs that the Japanese people have maintained since ancient times.

At ICPA you will learn these skills as Japan is one of the most civilised countries in the world and is recognised worldwide as an expert in this field.

ICPA courses equip you with all the skills required in the global society to live confidently and comfortably in your personal and business life, to achieve your goals, to succeed and to inspire others.

ICPA provides high-quality, high-class education to the top elite of professionals at national and international level, as well as to conscious companies and individuals who aspire to achieve these goals.

General protocol schools tend simply to teach what to do and how to behave, without regard to evidence or thinking skills. As a result, learners tend to have a shallow understanding of the subject and do not connect it to the future, which is one of the reasons why the public says they do not see why these matters are necessary.

At ICPA, we have established that all behaviour and thinking has a foundation and that learning is based on science, based on a variety of proven scientific evidence from research around the world.

From Japan, the land of courtesy and non-verbals, we offer a comprehensive learning package that is available only because we are bilingual Japanese specialists who are operating in the world.

ICPA is the only member in Asia of the Leading Etiquette and Protocol Schools of the World, a global executive group of only five globally selected countries, and is recommended as a Japanese member, with exclusive international accreditation; and It also issues certificates and diplomas and boasts an exclusive accreditation partnership with the International Protocol Accreditation Association – IPAA, representing Asia’s premier world-class, comprehensive international skills training school.

With the confidence and trust of our participants, clients select ICPA to achieve their dreams and succeed.
