Amy and Kathy are two girls from Singapore who have just arrived in Japan. At Haneda Airport, they meet up with Cedric who will serve as their tour guide for the majority of their trip. During their trip, the trio (and in the later episodes, duo) will explore the various areas of Japan and see and experience many things all while learning and putting their Japanese skills to use.
During key moments in the episode, a cartoon character named Ai and her assisant, an egg named Ueo, will appear onscreen and explain important vocabulary and notes.
