Konan Women’s University was closed for one week from the end of the last week of May 2007 for German Measles. Starting in Tokyo, many university have closed due to several cases of German Measles.
Some of my students may not attend this week as Konan Women’s University is closed due to German Measles. Smith’s School of English- Okamoto is located in the best location for these students. It is the closest English Conversation school to their University and their bus stop near the Hankyu Okamoto Station and the JR Settsumotoyama Station. There are two more universities located near the Okamoto School. These are the Kobe Pharmaceutical University and the Konan University. I have had students from each of these universities along with many many companies located nearby.
More and more I am glad to be located in Okamoto. It is a nice place and it really grows on you over time. Many of the cafe’s and shop owners are really nice and will allow me to exchange flyers with them. Their customers pick up the flyers and book trials. The shop keepers/cafe owners are so nice. This is another nice thing about Japan. I am finding that fellow business people seem to try to help one another out. This is a great country to live, work and have a business!
