Yoshi is a great instructor. Our 12 year old daughter is very into anime and wanted to learn Japanese. She was not prepared for the amount time this would take to learn. Yoshi was patient with her and she very much enjoyed the lesson that included her writing the names of her favorite anime characters.

So far I've had 5 lessons with Oyamada Sensei, and reading Japanese has already become much easier. We do NHK easy news, and I practice on my own and have gotten much faster at it. Looking forward to keeping going with them. Highly recommend!

Hi, I first taught Japanese to my friends at college in 2002 and I’ve always enjoyed teaching and interacting with students even though I didn’t expect it to become my career then. I have taught adults including senior citizens, college, high school and middle school students, and young children. Teaching Japanese to American military personnel and spouses who were stationed in Japan was the most rewarding experiences I’ve had. They truly needed the language skills to live in Japan, and they really appreciated that they were able to learn survival Japanese that’s instantly useful out in town.

I grew up in Japan and came to US to go to college. When I was a college student, I taught Japanese and English to middle and high school students during summer back in Japan. I have a Master of Education in TESL. I teach all levels including those who are starting out and also want to improve their fluency and understand the culture and history too!
I’m looking forward to working with ...

Ever since I discovered Dragon Ball Z on Toonami back in the early 2000's, I have come to develop a love of all things Japan, specifically anime and J-pop. My experience with learning Japanese started back when I started studying at home with my older brother back in 1999 or so, and then started studying Japanese at college, which culminated in the completion of a minor in Japanese as part of my BA. I have also visited Japan one time to visit my older brother who was teaching English over there at the time. I love Dragon Ball (among many, many other anime) and T.M. Revolution.

I am a native Japanese speaker with a Japanese teaching credential. All ages and levels are welcomed! Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student. I am also qualified to tutor graduate students (Master’s and PhD) doing their thesis.
I believe when we learn other languages, it is important to learn their culture, history, etc. for better understanding. I’ve learned Japanese drums, how to wear Kimono, Tea and flower ceremonies so that we can explore Japanese culture more than just learning the language!

Toshi is a great teacher that not only teaches regular Japanese, but about Japanese cultures and things you may not know or find in textbooks. Out of any of the Japanese teachers, I recommend him.

This review is an update from our last review 2 years ago...

2.5 years ago we were fortunate enough to find Toshi to teach our son Japanese. Our son started out as a high school student wanting to understand anime and his video games in their original language. Our son is legally blind so a talented and creative teacher was needed. Since then he has enjoyed learning the language with Toshi so much that he has formed professional goals to become a translator. Our son is now heading to university in the fall and will be majoring in Japanese Studies. The program includes a semester abroad in Japan and an internship with a major Japanese corporation. His goal is long term so he will continue to work with Toshi alongside his college studies to reach his goals. Toshi has always taken our son seriously and has adjusted his teaching program as his goals expanded. Toshi’s lessons are still a highlight of the week and it continuously surprises us to hear our son speak the language so beautifully. Our long term investment of lessons with Toshi has been very successful and such a positive experience. We highly recommend Toshi!

Yet our shared lessons are still possible since Ms S tailors the lessons on the fly to accommodate our different skill levels.

The 9 Most Popular Kanji Tattoos

When you're taking Japanese lessons, you will be introduced to the three different writing systems: hiragana, katakana, and kanji. Although kanji is generally considered the most difficult to learn, because of the symbols, it's the most popular writing system among non-Japanese speakers. Kanji consists of thousands of characters which were derived from the Chinese writing system. Because of the way they look, and the fact that they can convey a meaningful message in a limited amount of ch …
