About the Event

Want to learn Japanese culture? Practice your Japanese language skills? Or just connect with other people who have your same interests? Our Cool Nihongo gatherings are the perfect place for anyone captivated by Japan, Japanese, and or just the customs and celebrations of a culture outside their own.

Nihongo means “Japanese language” in Japanese. It is pronounced “Knee - Hone - Goh" and just like that, you’ve already learned your first word. In our Cool Nihongo gatherings the teachers give our monthly topic introduction based on the season, etiquette, literature or useful phrases. A handout for you to use and take home for reference is provided! Your teacher’s will help everyone practice together and complete an activity based on the content. There is also time to mingle with your fellow learners if you like. Cool Nihongo guests are encouraged to enjoy their full Garden admission included in the price as well by strolling through our green paths before or after the gathering.
