About Sensei

White Rice Sensei -better known as Scott- first came to Japan in 2008 as a US Marine. He began studying Japanese through Kumon and fell in love with the language and culture of Japan.

Scott has now been in Japan for a total of 8 years. He has served as a Marine, studied at 2 Japanese universities, and worked as a consultant in Tokyo.

Using lessons and phrases from life in Japan, Scott has been teaching Japanese to US Military, civilians, and their families since January 2018. He hopes that Americans living and working abroad in Japan will give their best effort to learn to read, write, and speak the language to get the most out of their time abroad.
