Our contest will be held concurrently with the Annual Japanese Cherry Blossom Festival (Sakura Matsuri) which will run until 4 p.m., giving the students opportunities to experience Japanese culture outside the classroom. Find more information about the Festival here!

Our area Japanese teachers and the HAJAS continue to work together to provide this opportunity for friendly competition and networking so that your students can showcase their Japanese knowledge and enjoy meeting other students from across the region. This year’s events include:  the Karuta Competition for all students in their first year of study (elementary/middle school, high school, and college divisions); Quiz Bowl Team Competitions for high school and college age teams; Shodo-Calligraphy; and Haiku
