Enrich Your Life and Relationships in Japan Together with TSUMUGI!
How is your new life in Japan?
Bringing up your child in a foreign country is not always easy. Just imagine if you could make yourself understood more in Japanese, how much better your ordinary life would be. Imagine the possibilities that would open for you, and the friendships you could make. We at TSUMUGI will help you make the most out of your time in Japan.

Providing Support for Your Peace of Mind in Japan
I have been teaching Japanese to people from around the world for over fifteen years. As well as teaching Japanese, I also offer psychological health care support. It is my wish to provide a safe learning environment for you and your family. I will be there to assist and support you every step of the way to overcome the difficulties of living in another country.

To Support Parents and Children from Overseas Living in Japan
I am also a parent of two children. I clearly remember how nervous and worried I was before my son started elementary school, wondering if he and I could adjust and have a good beginning to our new life. I will never forget the tension and worry I had. Having experienced these feelings, I understand and share your concerns as you step into an unknown world.

Bringing Together Language and Compassion
TSUMUGI means “to spin cotton together into thread”. Learning language is the same! I would like to bring people and hearts together through learning Japanese. We will support you as we work together to improve your life in Japan.

Feedback from students

日本語教室 ことばサロン TSUMUGI


I really appreciate learning sentence patterns for real situations I’m in.
The worksheet illustrations are cute and help me picture myself in the situations for better practice.
The flow of the lesson was really logical and each phase built on the previous one. By the end of the lesson, I felt more confident in talking to other moms in Japanese.
Tona sensei is so nice and she teaches in a genuine and friendly way.

I found today's session good.
It forced me to remember the sentences through repetition.
I liked that it was in a conversation format that can be used in everyday life.

The TSUMUGI Workbook is helpful for practicing particular real-life scenarios in which you may find yourself.
While my Japanese reading and writing has been improving, my listening and speaking skills (which I actually need more for everyday interactions) require a lot more work.
I found using this 'workbook' with Tona-sensei to be very useful in guiding the practice conversations.
However, I did find myself trying to cheat and read the sample sentences when they were in view instead of learning the phrases naturally.
That said, with all the repetition and variations of using the sentence structures, I did actually remember them long enough to try them with some mama-tomos the next day.
