Do you want to understand your favorite anime show, movies or Japanese culture better? Do you want to learn to crack jokes in Japanese and win any crowd over? Would you like to do business in Japan and need someone who can not only teach you the language, but cultural differences and etiquette so you can win over any client?

Japanese and English are polar opposites in many ways.
Sentence structures are upside down. English is written horizontally left to right, but traditional Japanese is written vertically right to left.
Communicating can be difficult when what can be spoken directly in English has to be said in more subtle ways in Japanese, and this miscommunication can cause relationships to break down.

My passion is to help people cross cultural barriers and make new friends.
Learning a new language can build confidence and expand your mind in ways you never thought possible!

One of the signs that you have truly mastered a language is to understand the humor. I can ...

Hello! How is your learning going so far?

Since you are looking at my page, I’m guessing that you are looking for a teacher who can help you! If you are trying to learn how to speak Japanese, it's your lucky day!



In my lesson, we will be talking a lot!


Are you a shy person or a beginner? Don't worry! I will help you!


I believe that talking is the most effective and fastest way to learn a new language.
When I was in school, I was so bad at studying, but when I put myself in another country and forced myself only to speak English and not make any Japanese friends, my English skills improved in such a short amount of time.


I would like to use my effective learning experience to teach here.



Kids don't learn their native language by studying; they learn naturally by listening and speaking.


So we will be talking lots during our lessons. Of course, I do not expect you to speak perfect Japanese! I know that you will make lots of mistakes; we will have a safe learning ...

I have been taking lessons with Yoshi-Sensei for about 3 months, and he is a great teacher. He easily adapts to my weak areas, even during a lesson, and constantly keeps me challenged and interested. He's always able to accommodate anything, and I love study from him."
