These are classes for foreign residents of Yasu to learn and experience Japanese traditional culture. Up to now we have offered classes in English Rakugo, flower arrangement, calligraphy, Japanese taiko drumming, indigo dyeing, and making Japanese foods such as soba, tofu and tsukemono. The content of these classes changes each year.
World Cooking Classes
In these classes a foreign resident introduces a popular food of their country. Through this cuisine, we can learn more deeply about their culture. After the cooking, we enjoy listening to a presentation about their country while enjoying the food.
Each year we have one class aimed at adults, and one class aimed at children.
'English Salon' Classes
These are classes for our members who wish to study English.
As they are provided for our members, those who wish to join a class will need to pay the annual membership fee.
