This is a group for parents who are Japanese, Japanese-American or part Japanese, have a Japanese or Japanese-American spouse, or have no Japanese background but are interested in raising your children to become bilingual in Japanese and English, and to be familiar with Japanese culture. I am a Japanese woman married to an American man, and we have an incredibly cute 17-mon old baby boy. I started this group because I want my son to grow up bilingual, and to grow up in a community of Japanese speaking friends. We live in East Arlington, and initially this group will meet in the Arlington area but I intend on hosting events in the greater Boston area in the future. We'll be meeting at playgrounds, take walks on the Bike Path, hang out at beaches, take trips to the zoo, visit the science museum, etc. We'll be doing all the things we normally do as parents, but with a focus on speaking in Japanese, to our children and to each other. If you are interested in creating a community of parents committed to raising your child bilingual and familiar with Japanese culture, this is the group for you!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
