Support us in 4 ways
We are looking for people to join us to give our children wonderful experiences at Tucson Japanese Language School as a teacher, an assistant, or a volunteer. No experience is required. However, you need to be able to communicate only in Japanese when you are in the classrooms. If you are interested in early education or just love working with children, this is a perfect opportunity for you！
We gladly accept any type of donation, including office products, stationery products and books. The most wanted items are Japanese books, dictionaries, or educational material such as Origami, Karuta, etc... If you would like to donate anything else, please contact us! We appreciate your generous contributions!!

Choose Amnet when you purchase your airline tickets to or from Japan. At the time of your reservation, just inform an Amnet agent that you are an affiliate of Tucson Japanese Language School and that you would like to use the Amnet Assist Program. Your reservation must be made over the phone.

4: Support Japanese school
@Yoshimatsu Japanese Eatery
As a part of our fundraising, Tucson Japanese Language School sells handmade chopsticks and chopstick-carrying cases. Our chopsticks are handmade by local artisan Jabra Robles. He carved and sanded each pair, crafting high-quality upcycled wood into beautiful chopsticks finished with all-natural bees wax and mineral oil without using harsh chemicals. There are available in cherries, walnuts and hard maple. Chopsticks carrying cases are handmade by volunteer parents of the school. A new design always comes in traditional and contemporary design, and you may not see the same design ever again. This reusable chopsticks and fashionable carrying case fits easily in your purse. Your habit of using disposable chopsticks and utensils can gradually be phased out using our product “My HASHI”. It’s a lifestyle change but every little effort counts towards reducing waste and harm to the earth. The Proceeds go to the Tucson Japanese Language School to support its students learn and grow. Come by Yoshimatsu Japanese Eatery, and eat local, shop local and support your local businesses today!
