Japan Society Education - Journey Through Japan

Japan Society is pleased to announce the launch of About Japan: A Teacher's Resource, a new, interactive website for K-12 Educators that features lesson plans, essays, a wide variety of resources, and numerous opportunities for discussion and participation.  About Japan replaces our former website for K-12 educators, Journey Through Japan, but we have transferred many of its most frequently accessed resources to About Japan: A Teacher’s Resource, often with improved contextualization and explanatory text. 

Please visit About Japan: A Teacher’s Resource, and feel free to contact us at jseducation@japansociety.org if you have any questions.
