WAK JAPAN's Publications


  • Many Japanese people would like foreign visitors to Japan to experience
    and appreciate wonderful Japanese culture.
  • Those who were offered kindness in foreign lands think so more strongly. We all know that only one or two hands-on cultural experience would not help people to gain thorough understanding of the culture. However, if you visit one country and enjoy a cultural experience with an experienced instructor there, you will probably come to like the country. We are proud of ourselves that we are making these things happen in Japan. What we always have in our minds is to offer foreign visitors wishing to do cultural experiences more in-depth and easy-to-understand explanation.
