HYPER JAPAN is the largest exhibition celebrating Japanese culture to be held in the UK. Organized by Cross Media Ltd., it was first held in London 2010. Centred on Japanese cuisine and popular culture such as gaming, manga, anime and music, the event introduces a wide range of Japanese culture, encompassing technology, fashion, traditional crafts.
Having undertaken the difficult decision to postpone the Festival due to the spread of COVID-19, HYPER JAPAN is providing exclusive online content straight from Japan, including webinars, entertainment and shopping.

Please be prepared 10 minutes before the workshop starts.
In this course, Mikiko will introduce the most commonly used conversational examples which you would use when travelling in Japan. You will learn how to express yourself in Japanese through role playing with other students – from this you will learn practical phrases, important vocabulary and some aspects of grammar. To improve your learning experience, she would like to make a friendly atmosphere throughout her lessons.
Prior to each lesson, you will be sent a handout that you will use in a lesson.
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.
