If anyone is interested in learning Japanese or traveling to Japan, I highly recommend Hita as a place to see. It is full of wonderful sights and things to do, particularly the incredible festivals like Kankousai and Gion. I’ve really enjoyed my time here and I’ve wanted to figure out a way to get more people to visit this great city in the heart of Kyushu.
Then along came Wakuwaku Japanese Language and Culture School. I know this sounds like a sales pitch but I am really excited about their program. The people are close friends of mine and are wonderful. You can learn Japanese as well as participate in a variety of traditional Japanese cultural activities. If you’re interested in that type of experience, check out their website at http://wakuwaku-japanese-school.com/
Hope to see you around!
