  • Beautiful place for gallery shows and cultural events. I can't wait to come back after attending the Obake festival.
  • Decent Japanese classes. Friendly staff!
  • They had a cute event for the kiddies this weekend for Halloween, the building was lovely, but it was so crowded and a bit disorganized with tickets for things
  • This has been my house for studying Japanese! I love it!
  • I did a crash course in Japanese here and got great results from the course. It's a very difficult language to learn but in only 4 days i was able to form a basic conversation useful for visiting Japan as a tourist.
