My teacher does a fantastic job of teaching me. I have studied Japanese for over 30 years. She is the best teacher I have ever had.

I am happy to recommend the Sasuga Japanese Academy to prospective students!  Our teacher adapted quickly to the unique challenges of language study during a global pandemic. With her high degree of knowledge and professional skill, she has transitioned to teaching over Zoom. With patience and humor, she employs textbook, video, email and office hours to support our study. Language, history and Japanese culture are incorporated in our lessons. The small class size allows for both individual advancement and collegial camaraderie. I look forward to the time when we can again enjoy outings such as the wonderful sake tasting event or friendly dinner at a Japanese restaurant.

Our Classes


We keep our classes in small sizes, a maximum of 5 -9 students ( minimum and maximum number of students  varies depending on classes ). Each student will have more participation time and receive more attention from the instructor.

We believe that class sizes matter!

What does SASUGA mean? 

If you were to look up the word sasuga in the dictionary, it would say "That's great!" Sasuga in Japanese has more than that in its nuance. It is close to the English phrase, "It's so you!" or "No one does it like you!" When a Japanese person praises another person, "Sasuga!" is often said, and when it is written, often followed by an exclamation point (!)
