Decked out in Samurai Attire at Edo Wonderland in Tochigi Prefecture


Mike Viscusi
Founder of Simple Gaijin Japanese / Head Teacher

One of the first things my first Japanese teacher taught me was that 学問に王道なし (がくもんにおうどうなし), or that "there are no shortcuts when you learn". This has been my mantra ever since I started learning Japanese in 2008 during my junior year of high school.

My misadventures around Japan helped me learn how the Japanese really think, what the culture is really like, and how to hack Japanese language learning.
