Yoshiko served as as an outstanding Japanese language instructor during our in-depth discussions on the difficult topics of esoteric Shinto-Buddhist practices and thought and the amalgamation and eventual separation of Shinto-Buddhist practices in Yamagata, a traditional center of Japanese religious beliefs and practices. Her detailed knowledge of this area and her professionalism were key to the success of my effort. She was outstanding, and I would strongly recommend her to anyone visiting Yamagata.
