What is J.TEST?

  • J.TEST is a Japanese language skill test administered by the authorities in Japan.
  • J.TEST was first introduced in 1991 as a test of practical Japanese.
  • J.TEST is designed to measure Japanese proficiency of non-native Japanese speakers.
  • J.TEST is administered in over 50 cities inside and outside Japan. In addition to six (6) Open Test dates throughout the year, we also have IP Test (Institutional Program) for companies and schools.
  • Over 400 companies, schools and organizations use J.TEST.

  • Consistent degree of difficulty in each test and more chances to challenge again.
    J.TEST is well designed to keep the degree of difficulty consistent in each and every test, and scheduled six (6) times per year. If you take the test more than one (1) time, you will know how far your Japanese proficiency has improved.
