PostSubject: tea shop(help is appreciated)   Sun 19 Dec - 12:55

I'll just go ahead and post the same thing I posted in another forum and if any of you know anything or have any advice,I would appreciate it -^^-

Ok,even though I'm 14,I like to plan ahead and know how to do things in my future,so I was wondering...

How would i go about opening up a tea-shop/cafe kind of thing? ^^; I really enjoy those kinds of places and me and my girlfriend have agreed that we are going to move to japan in the future and own one. Before someone tells me my dreams are un-realistic and such,I've already been to japan for a 2-week long amount of time and I LOVE it. And I definitely have the money,my family is rich,we take vacations to germany,carribean,etc. every year just for the heck of it,and my parents agreed to help me with my dreams,so here's what I want to know...

1.What should I do to get ingredients for tea? Do I contact the tea plantations directly? And then do I serve it as just that tea,or do I mix and stuff for my own,original tea?
2.Pastries. Me and my girlfriend are of course going to serve sweets along with the tea,since sweets and tea go together so nicely,but I was wondering if I should go to a college were I could get a degree in that type of thing(and probably management. In the end,this does seem like the smartest option,but input is still appreciated!)
3.Employees. This is going to be a small,tranquil kind of shop,I enjoy that feel alot,but I was wondering what I should do about hiring employees? Would I be just fine with me and my girlfriend or should I hire one or two people for part-time?
4.Uniforms. I've been putting plenty of thought into this one. Right now I have a friend that should be working on a design,but I think she forgot about it. I was personally thinking of contacting a fashionista once I was in japan(one that owns a shop in the same district) and getting her to design the uniform. Is that a good idea? and if so,how should I re-pay him/her,sponsorship,cash? I was also thinking of having cosplay and maid outfits on special days/weeks,anyone else think that's a good idea? (me and my girlfriend both have pretty good figures,so nothing to worry about not being able to pull it off ^//^)

oh and....if anyone knows japanese,could you tell me a good way for me to learn it please? ^^; I've tried contacting possible tutors and etc. who should be able to teach me japanese,but the only possible tutor was from a nearby college(which I have been to many times) and she/he is away in china for two years. I could probably learn it on my own,but that would take longer than I would like.

Well other than money and choosing a place to put your shop, you'll need the proper licensing to open a shop. (this site should help you find the correct license) http://www8.ocn.ne.jp/~risk21/license.htm#Restaurant
You could try talking to the Japanese Counsel Office for more information and details.

1. Many tea shops offer both regular and their own blends of tea. Try visiting some tea shops for ideas.
2. Going to collage for a culinary arts degree would be helpful, you could also study Japanese at the same time. You may want to consider a degree in business management as well. (you could study one while your girlfriend studies the other).
3. Employees would be helpful, if only you and your girlfriend are running the business, it means you won't get any time off from it. (running a business is stressful)
The best way to learn Japanese is at school. Some high schools offer it, but getting your degree and studying Japanese at the same time in collage might be your best bet. Tudors are out there but for now you may just want to buy some Japanese learning software.

-hope this was helpful

thank you mangetsu-san ^^ I wasn't aware we had to have a license ^^;

And I already bought some japanese learning software,but it's no good,so far just searching for the alphabets online and watching anime&music has been best for me ^^; Looks like I'll be autodictate...
stupid north carolina. Well,I appreciate the help :3

Barns & Nobel sells books that teach you hiragana, katakana and kanji. I found those books to be better than anything online.

I had to order mine from their website, they also had some kanji flashcards which were very useful.
