Irasshai is a Japanese language and culture video series for high school and college students, as well as adult learners and professionals. Dr. Tim Cook, an Emmy® award-winning instructor, takes students on a personal journey to where Japanese is spoken. Sometimes it’s predictable – inside a Japanese home or a Tokyo office building. Sometimes it’s less so – a sushi bar in Atlanta, a fishing hole in the Appalachians.
