For those who want to be involved in community activities and use their skills, we hold a cross-cultural workshop session and offer international people the chance to be an instructor. We hold a workshop based on the culture of one’s home country, which would feature music, dance, arts and crafts, sewing or home cooking. Also, in response to the needs of international people who want to learn Japanese cooking and culture, we hold a class offered by a Japanese Instructor.
