In June 2020 I did my first 5-day online Japanese culture residency for Charlton Heights Elementary School in Ballston Lake, NY, and this is what the teachers said:


The online program was fantastic. Your videos were very professional. The kids loved all the sessions and are still coming to our Google Meets with their Oni masks and Samurai hats! Thank you again Motoko! You are always such a class act and thoroughly enjoyable!


Please keep checking this page, as more videos will be available. Contact me with any questions or concerns. I look forward to hearing from you!


All the best,
