Our Japan on the Road program delivers an introductory cultural class to elementary schoolchildren; visiting 90 classes and 2,400 kids in the 2015-16 school year.

In March 2017 we are launching the first ever Pacific Northwest Japan Bowl for high school students – a wildly popular Japanese language and culture quiz, with winners qualifying to take part in the National Japan Bowl in April each year.

Together with Oregon’s sister State of Toyama-prefecture, we host an annual speech contest – the Toyama Cup –  for college students who study Japanese language.
