@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!

Remote Learning to be Continued...
Most teachers and assistants are not vaccinated yet, and also as a small supplemental school, our resources are limited. It will be very difficult to teach in person and online simultaneously and considering we only have 6 more classes, we have decided to continue online learning for the rest of the semester. We are all looking forward to your return to campus next semester and have a fresh start. Thank you for your understanding. Contact us if you have any questions and concerns.
Enjoy nice weather and have a great spring break.

New Year Greetings and school update
Happy New Year! Thank you for all of your support in 2020. It was a challenging year for staff, students, and parents. We would not be here without you. Thank you for helping us survive this year together.
Japanese school will remain on remote learning starting this Saturday, Jan. 9. We will plan to continue with online lessons for now, but we are cautiously hopeful that we will be able to return to in-person classes in the not-too-distant future! We are looking forward to another educational and fun semester of learning!
Best wishes to everyone for a better 2021!!

Japanese School decided that instruction would be online-only through December 2020. School administrators and parents are unwilling to risk students back into classrooms until the coronavirus is fully under control.
We are going to start in-person/online instruction in January 2021.
Hope everyone stays healthy as we are entering cold/flu season.

COVID-19 Relief Grant Award
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!!!
