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!

Japanese School holds Kanken

In view of the Covid pandemic, the Kanji Kentei was held amid strict precautions for 15 examinees in person in January. They have studied very hard till this day. We are glad we were able to conduct it in the midst of the pandemic. We should be getting the result back in several weeks. By the way, this Kanken is open to the public. If you are studying Kanji as a hobby, this exam is a great way to challenge yourself. Please contact us if you are interested in taking the test next year. We will be happy to give you advice on how to prepare for it.

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.
