Students of all levels are welcome. I respond flexibly to students' requests.
As a language instructor, my aim is for students to learn Japanese through a variety of exercises that are both fun and informative. I focus on communication as well as using textbooks because I would like students to speak the language as much as possible.
Students can use their improved Japanese skills in various situations, such as:
- Daily conversation: from casual to business Japanese
- Processing paperwork
- Attending meetings
- Writing emails
- Writing reports and theses
- Speeches and research publications
- Making teaching plans using Japanese
- Enjoy staying and traveling in Japan
In addition to giving lessons, I provide students with local information on Kyoto willingly.
My students in the Academic, Educational and Artistic fields, have a high regard for my classes.
I am also happy to customize lessons for foreigners living in Japan, self-employed people and travelers. I can prepare lesson plans ranging from survival Japanese to giving lecture at university in Japanese.
If students would like to improve their Japanese rapidly for work, I could prepare a rigorous course which includes homework. If they'd like their stay in Kyoto to be stress-free, I'd prefer to teach the language more casually.
Please share your objectives of learning Japanese with me. I will be committed to providing lessons tailored to your needs , so that you will feel happy to have me as your teacher. While you are taking my lessons, I am always open to receive your questions on non-lesson days as well.
Monday to Friday except Saturdays and Sundays.
Flexible hours 9:00-17:00.
Your office or home, Kyoto International Community House, cafe, etc. in Kyoto City. If you'd like to have a lesson at a cafe, please kindly choose a quiet non-smoking place.

Currently, the lessons are basically via Skype. If you would like to have a face-to-face lesson, please specify the lesson place, making sure that it is possible to have a lesson there.
