Sayuri (“small lily” in Japanese) is a leading and well established Japanese Language School based in Bangalore, India.

We deliver a variety of services that cater for general students, corporates, job seekers and other professionals seeking to undertake their chosen verticals in regards to Japanese culture and language.

With a focus on different verticals in regards to Japanese, Sayuri can offer complete Language training pathways for students of any age, cultural understanding and learning sessions for businesses, language translations, interpretation and workforce recruitment into Japan or Japanese companies.

From our own experiences living, working and conducting business in Japan for over 10 years it has allowed us to put together a variety of programmes and solutions that provide delivery of clear concise learning solutions for our students and corporate clients.

Sayuri provides a greater understanding of the Japanese Culture, ethics and business practices and skills necessary to conduct business and communicate effectively. Our courses are not only language based but offer an overview and insight into the cultural lives of the Japanese people and their way of life, which is invaluable to correctly communicate, especially in a Japanese business environment.

By using local and Japanese teacher resources it positions us to not only provide language training but real life stories, scenarios, role-play situations for students to gain a thorough understanding of the Japanese culture. This approach to teaching places Sayuri as a  unique and leading provider of Japanese Language and Services.

Sayuri is focused on delivering quality services to our clients and already has a highly regarded clientele list from both India and abroad that regularly uptake our offered verticals and services.

Konnichiwa, I am Ms Hemalatha Sriramulu and I have taken my love of Japan and the Japanese people and brought it to India in the form of Sayuri.

Sayuri was formed out of a love of Japan, and was seeded just as a way for me to express and share the wonderful culture and language of Japan I had experienced.


I am originally from Bangalore, and completed my engineering when an opportunity came to travel, work and live in Japan. This resulted in me having to quickly acquire the Japanese language and culture, which became a daily ritual for me on the train each morning.

I worked hard through successes and failures but was fortunate to establish myself as an Indian woman in their country amongst their culture and thereby forging lifelong business and personal friendships.

With some of those failures came lessons and with the successes came lifelong memorable rewards.

Our biggest life lessons come from our failures not our successes.

I eventually spent over 10 years in Japan and then travelled to Australia where I married and have my family but Japan was always silently calling.

Not content sitting idle I founded one of India’s top Mobile Apps Development companies in Bangalore but it was my passion for Japanese that kept pulling me.

It was in these moments that the realization came that teaching and Japanese was my passion which I wanted to share with others, and therefore planted the seeds for Sayuri.

I hope that Sayuri and my life journey helps to better provide a place of not only learning but a place of storytelling, life skills, wisdom, laughter and an environment that encompasses everything about being human and learning from one another.

Learning Japanese will open new doors, create new friends, have its challenges and experiences but you will carry and learn from them for the rest of your life.
