MORE ABOUT IKOMA

Our Story

Toshio Ikoma established Ikoma Shuzan Academy in Kesennuma City, Miyagi Prefecture, Japan sixty years ago. 
He has been well known for raising many excellent students with his sharp brain and insight skills.
 And also, he has been the leader of the ZENKOKU SYUZAN KYOIKU RENMEI for many years.
  In 2000, his daughter Norie set up branches in Vancouver and Canada to spread the word overseas. 
Since then, she has been teaching 2000 students for 20 years. There was talk of franchising, but we refused because it is difficult to maintain the level of the instructor for the students. Taking an opportunity of Covid19, we started a private zoom lesson and also, 
will set up a beginner's self-learning system soon.
By 2022, we will accumulate the number of face-to-face classes, and I hope that as many people as possible will learn Japanese abacus techniques.

Let me tell again. Please be aware,

We are not franchise school and we don't have any franchise.

FAST MENTAL MATH SKILLS

The use of the abacus uses a left to right calculation method, which makes quick estimation and rounding off possible. It improves the understanding of compounded numbers. Many children who are proficient in Abacus eventually visualize the Soroban in their minds and perform high-level arithmetics without the aid of any calculating tool.
