I research Japanese culture using a cultural psychological approach. I attempt to demonstrate experimentally that the Japanese have high self esteem and a strong sense of their own individuality cognised in a different media to that of Westerners, based upon observations of Japanese religion culture and philosophy. I teach English conversation in a unique way. I give students every opportunity to create English sentences keeping teaching of grammar to a minimum. This is the way I learnt Japanese.
