We were honored and blessed and surprised this month to receive a COVID-19 relief grant from Southern Arizona Japanese Cultural Coalition. We are touched by the act of kindness ❤️ Check out their website. They support the Japanese community and connect locals with Japanese people and culture. They also awarded us family memberships for Yume Japanese Gardens of Tucson. Those certificates will be distributed to our students and families so that they can take a break from screens and reset their mind and soul in a tranquil Japanese garden 🧘♀️
Thank you SAJCC for their support for our school!!!
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!

We are working in conjunction, take seriously the planning for several different scenarios that will allow us to keep students, their families, and staff safe while providing meaningful Japanese educational experiences. As of June 30, we think we can resume regular in-person classes in August. (but offering online class options or ready to move virtually in case of required shelter in place). We will closely monitor the situation and restrictions regarding CODIV-19 locally and internationally and take precautions that are required at the time of opening the school in two months.
