About Ichiyo Japanese lesson

I have traveled to 14 countries, and I met a lot of people who were into Japanese culture, including anime, manga, J-pop and so on.

After traveling abroad, I became an assistant, teaching Japanese to international students at my university.

If you have difficulty learning Japanese, incorporate the things you like (anime, manga, music etc) into your learning to make it more fun.

I learned English from heavy metal music, so I’ll teach you Japanese related to your interests.

When I was learning English, I wondered if native English speakers could understand my English and I wondered if my English sentences were natural or not. Sometimes English textbooks in Japan use unnatural English, similar to people who learn Japanese from Japanese textbooks.

Ichiyo's Japanese online study

So I prepared 3 types of lessons, which enable you to use Japanese daily. Having a Japanese native check and correct your Japanese, is very important for improving your fluency.

If you want an authentic experience with a Japanese person, I look forward to teaching you.

Hisae Sensei (Japanese Tutor)

Ichiyo's Japanese teacher hisae

Hello everyone. My name is Hisae. 

I am a native Japanese person, who can speak, read and write Japanese at a high level.

Currently in Japan, around 70-80% of the population cannot speak English at a fluent level.

My lessons use zero English, so I recommend those who want a challenge and have some Japanese ability, to take my lessons.

I had worked at a nursery school after I graduated from collage. My major was Education and Child Development.

I am a busy mother of 4 children, so I have plenty of experience of teaching Hiragana, Katakana and Kanji.
