Are you visiting Tokyo for a holiday?
Let’s learn Japanese and make your Tokyo stay special.

You can find essential Japanese phrases easily on the internet.
At a restaurant in Tokyo saying, “Can I pay with a credit card?” in Japanese is useful. But if you could say, “It was delicious” to the chef in addition, your travel could be even more special.
Have a 60-minute lesson at your hotel lounge and learn Japanese for communication with me!

The lesson is custom made.
Please let me know your interests and schedule via E-mail in advance.

The lesson fee is 6,000 yen per 60-minute lesson (maximum 4 people)
*This fee applies until the end of 2017. In 2018, the fee will increase.


Good for people in these situations:

“I’m going to Tokyo for the first time and want to know some basic Japanese greetings, phrases, etc.”

“I’ll visit Tokyo for a vacation. I would love to know Japanese culture from the language side.”

“I haven’t studied Japanese at all, but I’m interested in learning some kanji and basic Japanese for fun.”

“Our son/daughter works in Tokyo and we regularly visit there, but we basically can’t go out without him/her. It would be great if we could learn some useful phrases for shopping, restaurants etc.”

“I learned some Japanese phrases with a book and I want to practice them with someone. I have some questions, too.”

“I’m going to a sightseeing area and want to read the brochure written in Japanese in advance.”

“My friends will visit Tokyo and I want to give them a lesson as a gift.”



You can either pay the lesson fees in advance or when we meet for a lesson. It’s up to you.
Please pay by cash or bank transfer (furikomi).
I will provide an invoice and receipt if needed.

*I use English for this course.
*I don’t have Skype lessons now.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me by E-mail.


My favorite websites for travelers in Japan
