This study aims to describe perceptions of online learning in Kaiwa courses. This study uses an evaluative descriptive method with an online survey approach through Google form. Respondents in this study were 55 students of the 1st grade of the Japanese Department at the Universitas Komputer Indonesia Academic Year 2020/2021. The results showed that 96.4% of students stated that in this Covid-19 pandemic condition, online learning was the right learning method. 50.9 students stated that learning Kaiwa online was effective to improve speaking ability in Japanese. The problems faced in learning Kaiwa online are the facilities and infrastructure they have, the capabilities of the lecturers, and the learning process. The solution to this problem is to increase the capability of lecturers in carrying out Kaiwa learning online by using various variations of teaching methods. Lecturers always motivate students to be enthusiastic in attending lectures. In addition, Kaiwa learning materials are also stored in the university Learning Management System, so that students can re-learn the material that has been taught at any time. For students' ability to speak Japanese to continue to improve, motivating students and the ability of lecturers to carry out quality Kaiwa learning by using a variety of teaching techniques are needed.
