The Japanese Language School of Greater Hartford

Supporting students' learning of Japanese language and culture


We offer Japanese lessons for native Japanese speaking preschool, elementary, and junior high students. All children who can read and write Japanese at their appropriate grade levels, regardless of nationality, are eligible for enrollment.

Classes are held near Hartford, Connecticut every Saturday.

We are led by parents, volunteers,  and teachers, as well as with the Japanese Government's support.

Thanks to our small class size, we can provide detailed instruction to each student. This also allows for active communication between the instructor and parents.

Our morning meetings, which parents can also attend, introduce students to Japanese culture corresponding with the current season. 

Our school always has a fun and safe atmosphere, harboring a great connection between members of the faculty and the students.
