Q:  What institution of learning in Japan is sometimes referred to as "Happy Hill Girls' School" by its students?
A:  Fukuoka Jo Gakuin. It's a fairly literal translation. The institution, which includes a kindergarten, junior-senior high school, junior college, four-year college, and graduate school, takes its name from Fukuoka, the city where it's located.
