Who are we?
We are a society dedicated to promoting Japanese culture in the University of Warwick. Our primary objective is to act as a cultural hub for those who are interested in Japanese culture, by holding various activities, including socials, workshops, sporting events, and so on.
Our society, unlike other cultural societies in Warwick aims to unite individuals from different backgrounds, rather than making it exclusive to Japanese students. The majority of our members are not Japanese, and we treasure cultural interaction amongst our members. Because our society is also responsible for Japanese exchange students from various universities in Japan, we aim to enrich their experience in the UK by providing an international environment.
What do we do?
As a cultural society, we promote Japanese culture through events like Sushi Workshops and Origami Workshops, where members get to experience Japanese culture with their bare hands. We also hold occasional movie nights, where we watch various Japanese favorites. Our society also loves sporting events, where we play dodgeball and other Japanese games. And most importantly, we plan socials -- great opportunities to get to know new people who share common interests.
“Should I join? I am not Japanese!”
As mentioned earlier, our society is not exclusive to Japanese students. The majority of our members are not Japanese, and we love it that way. We speak English in all of our events, so don’t worry! Just come to one of our events, and you will start to love it.
“I want to learn Japanese”
Japan society organizes a language scheme for people who are interested in learning/teaching Japanese. Classes are free for all of our members. If you are interested in the language scheme, email us with your name and your Japanese level (beginner/intermediate/advanced). If you want to help us teach Japanese, just shoot us an email, telling us that you are interested in teaching Japanese!
