About me

I (Sakura) live and work in the Kansai region of Japan and have been working in the travel industry for several years. And when I am not busy with travel business I am working on this site and my other blog: News in Slow Japanese .

As a Japanese, I am very happy when people want to study my native language. And if I can make that process even a little easier, it makes me feel good. Living in various countries, I have had the opportunity to learn Spanish, Italian and English. This experience has taught me how fun speaking a foreign language can be and has also made me very aware of the barriers to getting there. I am not a teacher but rather a passionate learner of language like you. But I want to do what I can to help you with your studies.

This site is a one-woman show. I make almost everything by myself, so I really appreciate your feedback and suggestions. I love hearing from my readers and I especially like the nice comments. They are what keep me going.

Thanks for visiting!
