Do you know Kichijoji? It is an old but thriving area where many kinds of people enjoy their own lifestyle, and who are very friendly to everyone.

I am enjoying daily school life. I became instantly familiar with the classes and my various courses, kind teachers and the friendly atmosphere. Japanese language is very difficult to learn for those who come from English-speaking countries, however, you can make great progress if you study step by step every day, and attend class regularly.
