In a Japanese open space, somewhere in Tokyo, a foreigner is about to go home. He does not know that he is about to make a mistake...
- I am going home! Bye bye! (ノ≧∀≦)ノ
- ... (´・_・`)
- ... (๑•̌.•̑๑)ˀ̣ˀ̣
- ... ( •̀ω•́ )

 In order to fully learn a language, it is important to understand native speakers' manners and culture. The Japanese language is no exception and you have probably already learnt a lot about bows or greetings. Do you know what is the polite thing to say when you are in an elevator with Japanese people? Learn more about Japan's etiquette!

Have you ever been handed a warm towel when entering a Japanese restaurant? Do you know how to call it in Japanese?







Good job! Called "oshibori", this warm towel is such a good example of Japanese strong sense of hospitality, called "omotenashi".
If you have been to a Japanese restaurant, you might wonder how is called the towel given to you? Oshibori! Learn more about oshibori on our blog!

At the bank:
- Please apply your hanko here. 
- My... hanko? But, I do not have one...
- Aaah... Well... Goodbye.
In Japan (and other Asian countries), it is traditional practice to use a personal seal called "inkan" or "hanko" instead of a signature for signing documents.
Until recently, even foreigners were asked to do so! You can buy a hanko everywhere... But isn't it cool to make your own?! Would you chose a kanji or would write your name in katakana?
Tips: you will find a Seal Vending Machine at the "don quijote" in Takadanobaba!

I joined this school on January 17, but felt on January 19 (2 days later) that it is a bit too far from my home to travel. I thought I could handle the two hour train ride back and forth, but decided that I can't handle it. I asked them I want to cancel my membership. I thought that since I had only joined 2 days ago, they will be understanding and will refund me the fees. However, they were very difficult about it and said I cannot cancel. I In the end they deducted close to 17,000 Yen, out of the 45,000 Yen I had paid them. Be careful with this school. If you signup for a package, be very sure that you want to complete it, as they make it very hard to cancel. I am so disappointed. Everyone has been so nice in Japan so far, and this has left a bad taste. They should have more flexible cancellation policy. I will not recommend them to anyone.

My experience at Coto Language Academy was simply wonderful. At my age of 67 years old, I was apprehensive in starting school again after so many years out of it, and least of all, a foreign language course. To my pleasant surprise, I was able to assimilate and have fun as well. The motivation was the teaching and administrative staff of Coto. The teachers are extremely well trained and professional. They are very understanding and tolerant. The administrative staff, too, are very warm and helpful. I have made many friends there. After two months of intensive course followed up with some private lessons, I am now able to engage in basic Japanese conversation and finding my away around Japan. Studying at Coto has made my stay in Tokyo very enjoyable, at the same time, very fulfilling. Coto has provided me a constructive reason to come back and continue my study, in addition to enjoying the beautiful country and her culture. Keep up the good work Coto!!
