Takaosan,the Mountain with the Tengu

Takaosan is a 599 meter high mountain.
And it is located in Hachioji, Tokyo.
It is a mountain that is easy to visit from the city centre.
Many travellers like to hike in this mountain.

In this mountain there is an old temple.
It is called Yakuo-in and was created in the 8th century.
The symbol of this old temple is a Tengu.
It is a kind of Japanese youkai or genie.
The Japanese consider the mountains to be mystical.
That is why we think there is a Tengu here.

I’m going to start my Japanese lessons!

Jul302020

I’m going to start my Japanese lessons!

I will be giving Japanese lessons for our Japanese fans via Skype.

I studied Japanese literature in the doctoral class and my specialty is ancient Japanese literature.
My university is also known for researching Japanese language teaching.
That’s why I studied Japanese linguistics.
My professor is the author of the most famous dictionary in Japan ‘DAI-JIRIN’.
I taught Japanese to a Czech woman using the teaching method ‘Survival Japanese.

Now I’m a travel professional, and I want to teach Japanese to travelers.
Unfortunately, the Japanese do not speak English so well. It is the same as in Italy.
Japanese for travel will help foreign travelers find their way around Japan.
If you want to enjoy a hot spring at a Ryokan or try a delicious traditional meal at the local restaurant, all you need is a little Japanese.

I use the teaching methods according to ‘Survival Japanese’.
This means that speaking is more important than grammar.
If you want to talk to the Japanese immediately, then learn it with me.

If you would like some advice on your trip to Japan, I will be happy to answer your questions.
I am a travel professional and know all of Japan.

Tokiwa-so:The homes of legendary cartoonists

Tokowa-so is an apartment with legendary manga artists.
It was dismantled in 1982 due to ageing.
But the locals wished to rebuild the building.
After a long time, that dream finally came true this year.
It is a manga museum that faithfully reproduces Tokiwa-so.
Surprisingly, the cost is financed by donations.

All the manga artists in Japan respect Tokiwa-so.
That’s because this apartment is the source of Japanese comics.

Amaharashi-coast

There is a very beautiful scenery in Toyama Prefecture.
Toyama is famous for its Tateyama mountain range.
In addition, this prefecture faces the sea.
From Amaharashi coast, you can see the sea and mountain range at once.
It’s like a magic trick.

You can go there by local line.
But car rental is the best.
Because there is a nice “MICHI-NO-EKI(road station)” there.
It is a facility for drivers.
It’s great to have a cup of coffee here while looking at this beautiful view.

Kanazawa,another Kyoto

It is not too famous as Kyoto, but it is a wonderful city.
Do you know Kanazawa?

This old town was built by the Maeda family around the 16th century.
Fortunately, the city was not burned during the war.

The cherry blossoms of the famous garden “Kenrokuen” are enjoyed by local people.
Of course, this is also nice in other seasons.

This is a secret, but I like Kanazawa better than Kyoto.

Okomomiyaki of Hiroshima

Okonomiyaki is like japanese pizza.
All Japanese love it.

There are two kinds of okonomiyaki.
They are Osaka style and Hiroshima style.
Of course, the people of Osaka and Hiroshima are proud of their local okonomiyaki.

The Hiroshima style is a little more elaborate.
First, bake the dough like crepe, and put a lot of vegetables and meat there.
In addition, bake the noodles and eggs and stick them together.
In some okonomiyaki restaurants,the cook cooks in front of the guests.
If you can drink alcohol, beer goes well with it.
