Aikikai Hombu Dojo's Schedule
This is a visual version of Aikido Aikikai Hombu Dojo's lesson schedule and instructor timetable* in both English and Japanese.
Hombu's live calendar (found here) is checked periodically to confirm the schedule. This calendar is completely automatic and uses language heuristics to determine the time and teacher for a given class. If in reality there is a different teacher than my schedule shows, I am confident that it is also be reflected on the official calendar (this happens!). There is a high degree of error handling and sanity checks in this design. If anything strange does happen, or the calendar cannot be synced for some reason, I am sent emergency emails to look into the matter.
That being said, this calendar is the only Hombu timetable calendar I personally check as I have full confidence in its accuracy and automation. I hope you enjoy it too.
