Live in London?
This site is for you!
Returning to London after having taught English on the JET Programme for three years, I certainly didn’t want to just leave all the things I’d come to love about Japan behind me!
I wanted to know where in London to get a Japanese breakfast, enjoy hanami (cherry blossom viewing), study Japanese, buy Japanese wagashi sweets, and, umm, not to mention… meet Japanese people & practice my rusty Japanese speaking skills!
And so began my search for ‘Japanese London’. Since I started my research in 2005 I have explored the city, met amazing people doing amazing things, and scoured thousands of magazines, newspapers, brochures, websites and books. The JapaneseLondon.com website launched in 2010 – it’s completely independent and a labour of love.
Do you need to improve your Japanese language skills?
If you need to improve your Japanese for better relationships with work colleagues, friends or study opportunities, we recommend a private Japanese tutor – our tutors are qualified, friendly, experienced native speakers of Japanese. Having a private tutor can also be particularly beneficial for speaking practice or preparing for the JLPT. And of course, studying the Japanese language will make any visit to Japan SO MUCH more rewarding! Click here for more info on our specialist Japanese language tutors based right here in London.
