Learn Japanese With A Japanese Lesson & Japan Tour Collab!

By Alex Gray Oct 22, 2021

Sometimes it can be hard to find the motivation to study, especially if you are studying alone at your own pace. Trying new things and study methods can be a great way to get out of a rut. What if you could study Japanese, learn more about Japan and its culture, and gain motivation from your new study friends? Now you can take a Japanese lesson and visit different areas of Japan virtually through an online tour.

Japanese Lesson X Local Tour

With Go Wander Japan you can both learn Japanese and visit Japan virtually!

Go Wander Japan, established together by Tokyu Corporation and Guidable Inc., is a completely new program where Japanese lessons and online/physical tours are combined for an exciting learning experience. In this program, you will not only learn Japanese but explore recommended destinations in Shibuya and around the Tokyu-line.

What is “Go Wander Japan”?

Go Wander Japan is the new way to learn Japanese, make new friends and learn about places and traditions in Japan. If you’ve been studying Japanese by yourself at home, you can gain expert knowledge from teachers, ask them your grammar questions and gain the motivation you need to improve, something challenging when studying alone.

Included in the program:

・A 90 minute Japanese lesson for JLPT (N5~4 level)

・A 60 minute location tour (online or physical)

Students will take a Japanese lesson and then join a tour either online or in person (depending on the tour) with your new study buddies. The tour is conducted by a local guide who knows all the insider information about the area.

You can participate in as little as one unit or one month! The lessons feature practical Japanese language study that brings you closer to obtaining the JLPT in three months.

Schedule: Saturdays from 10:00am
Price: 2,000 JPY/1 Day ticket, 6,000 JPY/4 Day ticket
Location: WANDER COMPASS SHIBUYA, Shibuya Station, Shibuya (Google Map)

Why Take a Go Wander Class?

  • Learn Japanese interactively
  • You can learn interesting topics, useful for living in Japan
  • Get to see lesser-known parts of Tokyo
  • Join a tour with people who have similar interests
  • Meet new people every week – a great way to make friends, especially if you have just arrived in Japan!
  • The price is great – especially for the 4 day ticket!
  • Anyone can join!
  • The classes are held in an easy to access location

What Does A Japanese Lesson Cover?

For JLPT N5 Level Classes

In each class, once the grammar and expressions have been covered, students will have 15-30 minutes to try out the N5 level questions. This is a great opportunity for learners who have not yet reached N5 level to gain practice listening to, and for learners who have reached a higher level to practice speaking.

What’s Great About Go Wander Japan’s English Lessons

  1. Small Class Sizes – with small class sizes you can learn at your own pace
  2. Customized Classes – students can request what to learn based on their interests
  3. Practical Experience – during the tour, students can practice Japanese phrases/expressions learnt in the lesson
