Japanese language teacher
Mikiko was born and grew up in the old town of Inuyama, located north in the Aichi Prefecture, Japan. Inuyama is a city famous for its beautiful castle and the Kiso River.
On contrary to her upbringing in Japan, over the last 20yrs Mikiko has lived in various locations across the globe – the USA, Hong Kong and the UK with her husband and 2 children.
Living overseas has inspired her to share her Japanese heritage, particularly the Japanese language. She currently lives in the UK and is teaching Japanese at the Japanese school in London and privately to students who aim for GCSE or Japanese Language Proficiency Test.
In her friendly and creative lessons, Mikiko focuses mainly on what students wish to learn and what they need to master practical Japanese skills. Her aim is that you feel like you are in Japan during any HYPER JAPAN online Japanese lessons.
Mikiko enjoys Shodo-Japanese Calligraphy, reading, travelling, golf and cooking. She would like to share her favourite book “Leach sensei ( Dear Mr Leach)” by Japanese author Machi Harada with any HYPER JAPAN fan – a story of young English potter Bernard Leach and his beautiful friendship with his Japanese friends during his stay in Japan to study Japanese art. She would like to assist you in reading this book in Japanese.
