What to Expect

I am a qualified tourist guide as well as a certified and experienced Japanese teacher.
So I will propose a special plan for utilizing both skills
for a person who is not satisfied with just being as a tourist but would like to experience ordinary life in Japan,
or for a person who has just arrived in Tokyo and will stay here for a certain period.
Why don't you learn basic Japanese and try actual practice on the spot?
A. I will teach you Japanese expressions for how to take taxi, bus, trains showing the route map including questions & answers session and then take you to the station, teach you how to buy tickets, have you experienced an actual ride on bus, trains [in all for 4 hours].
B. I will teach you Japanese expressions for how to buy daily goods at a supermarket, shops etc. according to your request and then take you to those shops ( I will explain whatever you would like to know) in order for you to do actual practice in Japanese [in all for 4 hours].
C. I will teach you Japanese expressions for how to order food and drinks including questions and answers session and following that, I will take you to a fast food restaurant/ Japanese restaurant/ Sushi-bar whichever you would like to go for actual practice in Japanese while explaining more on the spot [in all for 4 hours].
At your request, I will be willing to make a new plan.
It is recommendable for you to take all three lessons but it is of course all right if you choose one or two.
*For each lesson, the fee is ¥12,000. If you take 3 lessons, it will be ¥36,000.
For group lesson ( up to 3) I have a discount plan . Please see FAQ.

Hi, I'm Hiroko. I live in the suburbs of central Tokyo-alongside of JR Chuou line where there are abundant sightseeing spots such as Ghibli Museum( MIyazaki-Hayao animation museum), INOKASHIRA park(zoo as well), KICHIJOUJI(the most popular town in Tokyo), JINDAIJI(the second oldest temple following Sensouji-temple in Asakusa), KOGANEI park (EDO-TOKYO architecture museum)
Sawanoi-sake brewery,
Mt. Takao (hiking), etc..
When you would like to visit the second popular sightseeing spots, I will be happy to guide you around one of them. I'm sure you'll find and see some of the true and ordinaly life in Tokyo. Of course I am also very happy to guide you around the various popular sightseeing spots in central Tokyo as well, but when you would like to experience more, remember, it's sometimes true that you can find equally valuable things in less popular areas. Let's have an adventure with me!!! read more
