A Bit About Us- Your Personal Japanese Language Trainer

My Name is Abhishek. Since Childhood I have always been curious about Japanese Culture. The Stealthy Ninjas, Brave Samurais and Japanese Animations interested me .After graduating from High School, I was standing on the cross road of my future and pondering over the subject I should select to study further. Since I had graduated in Business Stream from high school, I had the regular options of Economics and Business Management. But my interest in Japanese had grown stronger over the years and I decided to pursue a course in Japanese language.

That was the year 2000 and there were not many options available in India to pursue a course in JapaneseLanguage. In additional an unconventional carrier choice raises eyebrows from society. Fortunately there was one premier institute which offered a 3 year under graduate course [B.A(Hons) Degree] in Japanese Language. It was Jawaharlal Nehru University in New Delhi. I appeared for the joint entrance at the University and was able to secure a seat in Center for Japanese Language Literature and Cultural Studies.

For 3 years, I learnt the language, literature and culture from the best Native and Indian Teachers.

How I discovered my Ikigai

After graduating in 2003, I joined a MNC with a Japanese Process in Bangalore. The corporate exposure was good and it taught me professionalism, team work, interpersonal skills and problem solving skills. But deep down I had the passion for contributing more to the society and pass on the skills and learning. In other words I wanted to follow the path of IKIGAI a Japanese word which means Purpose of Life. And I realized that my IKIGAI was Japanese.  I started teaching Japanese from 2004. Since discovering my Ikigai, I have been teaching Japanese to young and old, from Junior School Students, College Youngsters, and Corporate Professionals to Homemakers and Senior Citizens. In 2017, I joined Bangalore University as Guest Lecturer and taught for 3 years. During this period I also had the opportunity to design a new Japanese Language Course for the University.

How ‘Ohana’ Was Found?

Moving a step ahead I decided to start my new school “Ohana” Japanese Language School in 2021.”Ohana”means flower in Japanese and you can see the image of the Flower’s Kanji (Japanese Alphabet System) in the logo.

The Objective of the Ohana Japanese School

The objective of the school is to provide a platform for all Japanese Lovers including me to learn from each other about Japanese Language Culture and Customs and promote Japanese Education in India and bring India and Japan cultural ties closer.
And don’t worry!!I Japanese language is closer to Indian Languages than English as we have the same grammatical structure .Therefore it is easy for us to grasp quickly. We have classes in English as well as Hindi. You can choose a language of your choice.

If Ohana and Other equally wonderful Japanese Schools across the world are able to provide quality Japanese education and enrich your life in some way, then we all will meet our IKIGAI. And that is our ambition.
