About me

Konnichiwa, genki?

I was born and raised in Japan. I now live in the Netherlands.

I was the company owner of a language school in Shinjuku, Tokyo for 8 years. We were specialized in teaching Japanese from beginner to business levels for European and Asian expats living in the Tokyo area. I also taught Japanese as a head teacher in addition to training other teachers.

It is always interesting for me to teach people with different work experiences : ) Because I believe that teaching language always opens my new world!

Don’t worry, if you don’t speak a word of Japanese. Everyone has to start from somewhere… In fact, I am learning Dutch now!

Let’s enjoy learning Japanese language and culture with me!

Yoshi is a great teacher. I am working towards my N5 JLPT exam and he can cater for this. He is patient and helpful and goes beyond expectations! My first lesson was spent grasping my language level. Great job. I look forward to future lessons!

Despite our session starting late because I didn't know how to use Skype, Yoshi san was very nice about it and still continued with our session. It was nice meeting him and I'm looking forward to practicing Nihongo in our sessions together.
