The Numerous Japanese Dialects

There are two primary groups of Japanese dialects: Eastern (including Tokyo) and Western (including Kyoto), with additional sub-variants such as the dialect of Kyushu and Hachijo islands. The Ryukyuean languages of Okinawa are technically not dialects of Japanese but rather related languages of the  Japonic family.

Japanese Accented English:

Nothing is worse than a bad Japanese accent unless that is what you are trying to do of course. We help actors and projects to create the perfect Japanese-accented English performances. Read about our process here and why it is so important to have a dialect coach for accented English performances.
