●how to Japanese write Japanese neatly

For students interested in learning how to properly speak Japanese. I can talk slowly and provide you with a fun time taClking with me.

 Japanese is a very unique language. Learning how to read and write can take some time. Nevertheless, with effort and practice, you too may learn how to properly communicate with others in Japanese. Let’s spend some time together so you can achieve this goal!


I’m Takayo, a former flight attendant for an international airline and a parent of three bilingual daughters living in Germany!

I have been learning Japanese calligraphy since I was 6 years old, and I would like to teach you how to write beautifully.

↓↓ Recommended for the following students.

  • I don’ have confidence in my handwriting.

  • I want to be able to write in front of others without hesitation.

  • I need to write by hand because of my profession.

  • I want to write vertically.

  • I want to write quickly with a pen because calligraphy is too complicated.

  • I want to write more beautifully.

  • I want my child to learn to write hiragana and kanji whilst having fun.

  • I want to write letters to my loved ones.

  • I want a new hobby.

  • I want to learn how to concentrate.

  • I want to learn about Japan.

  • I’m interested in meditation, but I can’t do it with my eyes closed.

  • I want to lead a quiet life.

  • I want a teacher who lives in Europe because of the time difference.

\ I will listen to the concerns of each student and carefully provide individualized training to address the issue that they want to solve.
