School Visit Program
Members of the Consulate-General of Japan are available to come to your school to give a presentation on Japan and Japanese culture. The presentation can be tailored to meet your class lessons or your students’ interests. Typically, two or three staff members will visit a school and teach the students about contemporary Japanese life, such as the school system, lifestyles, etc. with the use of visual aids such as maps, photos and videos. Following the presentation, arrangements can be made to do short cultural activities such as origami, calligraphy, storytelling, etc.
