Our Teams


Terumi Kai


It’s Chihiro living in Okinawa, a beautiful tropical island. Before I met JLF, I had studied English and German grammar with textbooks. In the grammar study, I had no idea how to pronounce and could not speak at all. 

But after encountering JLF, has changed my way of thinking about language learning. Since I got to know the method, I have been training English and German while working out or walking in the mountains. I would like to share the JLF method worldwide. What you believe you can achieve.

Let’s enjoy the journey of language learning together!


Chihiro Kobayashi

Coach at JLF Headquarter

Hello, Nice to meet you, I’m Chihiro. born and raised in Fukui, Japan, where I spend most of my life, but currently living in the beautiful subtropical island of Okinawa. 

My career started in Fukui as a preschool teacher. My passion for traveling and diving, let me become a diving instructor. Working in the diving industry brought me to many places around the world, like the Philippines, Thailand, and Australia. 

Also, currently, I’m doing speaking training in my 3rd language  German.  Let us learn together new languages.

Kazuyo Ono

Coach at JLF Headquarter

Hi, my name is Kazuyo. I live in London. I believe the Covid-19 pandemic has changed the lives of almost every person in the world.
However, 2021 will also be the year some people’s lives altered for the better – with the pandemic, directly or indirectly, causing a major change in their circumstances. In fact, it led me in a new career as Japanese language teacher. I am grateful for the opportunity given to me and ambitious for the future!
I describe my personality as outgoing, adaptable, and capable of fitting into a multitude of situations. Also I believe I am approachable, light-hearted, and positive. 
My teaching style: actionable, considerate, and compassionate. Are these personality traits you are looking for in your next teacher??

Shono Midorikawa


はじめまして!Hi, I’m Shono. I’m from Saitama. But currently, I live in London. I love playing basketball so I go to play basketball once a week! And I also love watching films, especially horror movies 🙂 I used to live in Australia and Canada as well for studying English and working with local people learning about their culture and making lots of friends.
I had a nice experience there but of course, I was struggling to communicate with English speakers. I’ve lived in 3 different countries but still, my English is not good enough. So I understand how hard it is to study new languages. That’s why I am here to support you to study Japanese! Sometimes I might be strict with you because I want you to become a Japanese speaker! There is always a reason 🙂 Anyway, I am so excited to support you and to see you improving your Japanese and your coincident face with speaking Japanese! Let’s do it !!

Chiaki Yamada


Hi, my name is Chiaki and I am from Osaka, Japan. If you want to learn Osaka-ben (Osaka dialect) I’m here to teach you or, if you prefer, I can of course speak with a general Japanese accent.

I am patient, easy-going, and fun! I’ve been playing basketball since I was a child, more recently I have taken up outdoor sports such as snowboarding and surfing. I love taking part in sporting activities as it keeps me fit and encourage positivity!

I love to travel and I have visited around 30 countries. I have traveled in a van across Japan for 3 months and I have many recommendations for places to visit in Japan. I have also lived in Australia, Canada and the UK. I couldn’t speak English at all when I first went to Australia. At first, I was scared to try to speak English because I didn’t want to be embarrassed or to end up seeming rude. I came to realize that if I didn’t try or allow myself to make mistakes, I wouldn’t be able to learn anything! I kept trying and that’s how I have managed to (and continue to) improve my English.
I completely understand how challenging it can be to learn a new language but the reward is priceless and it is a life-changing skill.
I am so excited to help you to become a confident Japanese speaker!!

Chikako Ichikawa


Hi, こんにちは。I am Chikako. I was born and raised in Nagano prefecture 

but currently, I am living in Yokohama City.

I am passionate about learning English. I always enjoy meeting new people from different nationalities and sharing experiences from the learning journey.
I thrive on learning new languages, however, it’s not always smooth sailing.
When I was young, I was dedicated to learning English such as grammar, listening, and writing. However, I couldn’t speak English at all. Even though I had a chance to talk with native speakers, I was so nervous and overwhelmed by them. So I can completely understand how challenging to learn a new language.

Let’s break out of our comfort zone together with Terumi’s method.
I am an enthusiastic, easy-going, understanding, and amicable person.
In my free time, I love doing yoga, watching Netflix, and exploring something new.
In the future, I would like to immerse myself in different cultures and visit lovely places with my daughter.
Come and share with me about your life, jobs, and hobbies through the power of communication.
Don’t be afraid of making mistakes and asking any questions!!!!

Failure is part of success!!!!
Can’t wait for seeing you in my class.
