Global society's essential skills learnt from Japan, a land of courtesy

The Intercultural Protocol Academy of Japan (ICPA) provides guidance for individuals, companies and embassies in Japan and abroad to be globally successful.

ICPA teaches international education, international etiquette, international protocol and cross-cultural communication as universal skills for global success, and trains global specialists who are active worldwide as professional educators, and through training and support for global companies, ICPA We contribute to the globalisation of the world through training and supporting global companies.

In today’s information-oriented and globalised society, the acquisition of these skills is needed more than ever.

As for Japan, the coronation of the new emperor, the most mysterious part of Japanese culture, was broadcast live to the entire world, and the excellent diplomacy of the Emperor and Empress has come to the world’s attention.

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 discovered that the roots of the international rituals that the ICPA has been guiding since the beginning are the very philosophies and customs that the Japanese people have maintained since ancient times.

Non-verbal communication is not only attentive, but also enables smooth communication, allows one to accurately read the thoughts of others and avoid potential risks. The Japanese are a people who have practised this habit on a daily basis for thousands of years.

The global skills required today, including intercultural understanding, interpersonal communication skills, cooperation, soft skills and the all-important etiquette, are skills that have been part of Japan’s historical learning.

At ICPA, these skills are developed due to the fact that Japan is one of the most courteous countries in the world and is recognised worldwide as an expert in this field.

ICPA courses develop all the skills required in a global society, enabling you to live confidently and comfortably in both your personal and business life.

*ICPA is designed for people with the manners, culture and dignity to learn and improve. Please refrain from taking this course if you have not reached a certain level of education.

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.
