More than a guide service

Hidden Lakeland delivers a wide range of professional and educational services to individuals, hospitality providers, businesses and charities in Cumbria using skills built up over the course of living and working in Japan for more than 20 years.

Translation and interpreting

If you’ve ever tried to use translation software you’ll understand why getting your message across in Japanese is about much more than mere words: it’s about cultural context. We provide effective Japanese to English and English to Japanese translation and interpreting to help you communicate your message.

Training for successful Japanese partnerships

We offer clients in the hospitality, academic, commercial and charity sectors everything from short basic language tutorials through to half day workshops covering business etiquette (name-cards, bowing, punctuality, who sits where, etc.), pointers for intercultural awareness and essential tips on Japanese culture.

Content and copy writing

Do you require an editor or proofreader for your book publication, journal or newsletter or effective content for a blog or website to promote your business? We can create copy and content that says what you want to say.

Educational tour design

Are you a high school or university teacher bringing students to the UK to study? Hidden Lakeland can design and deliver a short-term study programme for Japanese students in partnership with academic, charity and business sectors, developing dynamic tour content to meet your students’ needs.

Japanese language teaching

Whether you are in need of some holiday Japanese or are preparing for a Japanese high school examination or a research trip or trade delegation to Japan, we offer opportunities for individual or group study structured to meet your needs.
