Japanese Immersion Available In Anchorage

If you’re interested in learning more about Japanese culture, or if you want to learn how to speak Japanese, today was the 16th annual Nihongo contest. The University of Alaska Anchorage was host to an exhibition of the cultural diversity of a “welcoming community”. The centerpiece for today’s event were scheduled competitions between students in the areas of skit presentation, songs, poetry, all presentations in Japanese. Some of the final trophies presented at the closing ceremonies, were gifts from the three sister cities to Anchorage.
If you’re interested in attending next year, Nihongo contest is held annually, at the end of March.
