    Hello Aoki-san,

    I am interested in taking the Japan Boat Class 1 License Course with my wife.

    We live in Tokyo and would prefer Tokyo or Yokohama but can make it to Yokosuka if needed.

    Is it possible to arrange weekend only classes? Either two weekends or 4 saturdays?

    Looking forward to your reply.

    best regards,

    A friend and I would like to take private lesson for Japan Boat Class 1 license.
    We are only available in weekends so it would be great if we could have class on 2 weekends in November.

    Dear Aoki-san and team,

    I have lived in Okinawa for 7 years. My wife and I are both interested in getting our boat licenses. Are there any scheduled courses for the year on Okinawa?

    Thanks for any info.
