Voices

The course was very reasonable
"The course was very reasonable"
I thought the courses were very reasonably priced, and was happy that I was able to book even though I was just one person. Also appreciated the flexibility in timing and dates. For me, these are both selling points of the classes, very useful for visitors that may not have that much leeway in their dates/timings when in Tokyo and are not travelling with a big group.
All the teachers were really lovely!
