When I was a teenager , I went to Canada on working holiday visa. I was asked about Japanese language by a Canadian friend, but I was confused and couldn't explain properly. As a Japanese I realized that I need to learn more about the Japanese language and Japanese culture. At the same time,I though that I wanted to be a Japanese language teacher.
In this school , I want you to learn not only Japanese language , but also Japanese culture.

<Favorite local place>

I like walking around a row of White-walled Storehouses, and at Setogawa Canal in Hida Furukawa.The scenery is very beautiful , so I recommend you to take pictures there.
There are more than 1,000 carps in the canal , and it's a good experience for you to feed the carps.

When I was a junior high school student, I went to Australia and stay with a hostfamily. Life in different countries was exciting and very enjoyable. However, I think that if I would have higher level of language skills, I could communicate more smoothly with local people and spend more fun time.

At that time, I learned that languages ​​strengthen people-to-people connections. Based on my experience in Australia, I want many people who are interested in Japan to improve their Japanese skills, and have a fun time in Japan.

To improve your Japanese, I will give you advice for learning.  I also give advice for daily life so that you could spend a enjoyable time .


 I like watching Japanese movies. If you like to watch Japanese movies to improve your Japanese, please ask me!!
