Japanese Cultural Activites

Explore Japanese Culture Program 

Our Explore Japanese Culture (EJC) Program, which teaches Japanese culture to underserved children and other cross-cultural activities have taught Japanese culture to thousands of children and teens in the NYC area. The goal is to encourage the participants, including our Japanese volunteers, to become global citizens and open-minded by exposing them to a different culture. As a result, the next generation will learn to respect and appreciate people of different backgrounds and foster a diverse community that leads to a more creative, productive, and enriching society. 

In addition we promote Japanese culture to the broader community through Japanese and local festivals.
