We are a group of Japanese teachers in Salinas, CA. It is our passion to provide quality Japanese language and culture programs for our students. In addition to regular language courses at schools we have been organizing the Monterey County-wide Japanese Speech Contest, Karaoke Contest, and Japan Trips for over a decade. Now, we are excited to invite our students and Salinas residents to enter our newest event, "J-Art Exhibition" this year!
