HIRO sensei

Bachelor of Economics
Cert. Japanese Language Teaching 

From : Tokyo
Hobby: Sports and cooking

Before coming to Brisbane in 2020, I have been living in Singapore for 23 years. (I have been visiting Brisbane from Singapore every year. I love Brisbane.)

I have started teaching Japanese more than 10 years ago.

​I really enjoy sharing the knowledge and culture through Japanese study and conversation. I am really happy to meet and talk those who are studying Japanese vividly with bright-eyes.

I like all kinds of sports, such as tennis, golf, swimming and so forth. Recently, I am just watching a game, but I love American football, Rugby, and after coming to Brisbane, I became a fan of AFL.
 

I also like cooking, especially Italian cuisine. I cook pasta and pizza. I can cook pasta with tomato source, cream source, seafood source and olive oil source.  Mmm…Buon appetito!
