Hi everyone, Hajimemashite/ はじめまして




Hi everyone, hajimemashite. (Nice to meet you.) I am a Michiko Kimura, Japanese woman living in Amsterdam. 

Though I am a Japanese language teacher for non-Japanese people now, I used to work in a Japanese music industry as a manager of musicians, a organizer of events & concerts, a director of music products, etc,,, for a long time. Life is interesting, isn’t it. I had taught Japanese in Tokyo for about three years and moved to Amsterdam about a month ago. It is going to be the challenging for me.

In this blog, I would like to introduce a culture gap which I feel, some interesting episodes about culture gap from my students’ perspectives, Japanese language and my everyday life. I have to mention that my English is not perfect and therefore you would find many mistakes in my blog, however I will try to write in Japanese and English. Thank you for your understanding in advance.

Yoroshiku onegai shimasu.
