In these times of crisis everyone is searching for and doing whatever they can to help the people affected by the disaster.
The thought of “What can we do? How as a small Japanese language school in Fukuoka can we help?” appeared in our hearts. The result was an effort to convey to the survivors our desire to overcome this obstacle together and express our feelings of gratitude for concern and support received from the warm hearts of people from all around the world towards our nation.
From Fukuoka to the world, we send you a message of “Love & Hope”.
