Our history up till now/これまでの経緯:

It's all about love and peace!

The organizer wanted to help create world peace. He thought about what he could do as an individual and how fun it would be to have a place where people with different ideas and values can meet and understand each other through open communication. Being from Japan, he felt he could contribute to this purpose by creating a place where people could teach and learn Japanese and share the Japanese culture.

We started a Japanese conversation group on May 28th 2013 and three people attended the first meeting. He set up the Honolulu Japanese Language and Culture Group account on June 4th. Within two months, membership increased from 1 to 50 and, currently, more than a dozen members attend the weekly meetings.

In order to make our group available to everybody and more academic, we are officially registered the group as a non-profit organization. This educational program is a part of Livable communities Hawaii. Homepage:
Also, this program is supported by Wildlife Hawaii LLC. Homepaage:
