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.
