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 ...

おもしろい!

Yuriko is very knowledgeable, friendly and patient. I've been studying Japanese on my own for about a month and decided I wanted an instructor to help me. I was very nervous to speak Japanese in front of her as my studies have left me reading about grammar and vocabulary, not necessarily saying much of it out loud, but she quickly calmed me with her reassuring nature. She provided me with a lot of insight on the use cases for many words/phrases, as well as Japanese culture. I left my first lesson feeling confident and ready for more!

I'd highly recommend Yuriko to anyone wanting a Japanese language instructor! She's the best!

My daughter is absolutely LOVING her lessons with Yuriko. We travel often and it is wonderful that my daughter is able to continue her lessons, where ever we are.

My 12 year old son takes Japanese with Toshi weekly for an hour. He has enjoyed the lessons from day one. Toshi is a gifted teacher, and my son appreciates quick breaks during the lesson (it keeps him engaged for longer). My son says Toshi is a nice balance of serious and fun, and he also says what a great teacher he is. Toshi is supportive, encouraging and fun. What more could you ask for?!
Jaron
Toshi Sensei is very professional and genius. Since my major problems are speaking and listening, he tailored every lesson to my individual needs and included a lot of challenging materials that fit my level. Highly recommend!
Rex. C
Toshi is very knowledgeable and very patient with my 12 year old, he's always happy and smiling and leaves my daughter excited for the next lesson :)

I had a great session with Wakana and am excited to do more. She was very interested in why I wanted to learn Japanese and is tailoring the lessons to help me get the most out of it. She made it very interesting and fun. Recommend 10/10!
Matthew
I've seen Wakana several times over the summer in preparation for a fall class, and I'm confidant that she is more than capable of helping me through the two years of the language need for graduation. She has a strong grasp of both English and, from what I can tell, Japanese along with great interpersonal skills. I would gladly recommend Wakana to friends and family.
Adrianne K.
I had so much fun today speaking Japanese with Wakana! She is very kind and will help you if you don't know what to say. I look forward to learning more with Wakana!

Japanese Honorifics: Formal & Informal Name Suffixes | TakeLessons

When learning to speak Japanese, you’ll come across suffixes used to address people called “honorifics.” Japanese honorifics are an important way to convey respect, formality, and friendship to those you interact with. Both formal and informal honorifics are common in Japanese, which is why every speaker needs to get the basic suffixes down. To an English speaker, the concept of honorifics may seem new, but the fact is, we already use terms, such as Miss, Mr., and Dr. as prefixes. But …
