The Wonders of Japan: Book a School Visit!

We are not taking applications for visits at this time, but will be shortly. Please check back on this page for updated notices.

The Information and Culture staff at the Consulate-General of Japan often visit schools in the Greater Toronto Area to give age-appropriate presentations on various aspects of Japan. Topics include:

- General information (geography, population, etc.)
- Origami
- Calligraphy
- The Japanese language
- Games
- Traditional culture
- Martial arts
- Anime and manga

These visits are free of charge. We do ask, however, for assistance from the teachers of the school for supervision.

In order to book a visit, please download the guidelines and application form.

Should you have any questions, please contact Atsushi Kato at
