School Program


The Consular Office of Japan is now accepting requests for school program presentations in the Anchorage area. Presentations will take place from November 2017 to March 2018. Please download the request form below.

The Consular Office of Japan offers a free educational program for elementary, middle, and high school students. Each presentation is about an hour long with a general introduction to Japan followed by information on a specific topic, such as Japanese culture, art, or history. Students are welcome to ask questions at the end of the presentation.

Presentations generally include a lecture accompanied by a slideshow with information and pictures. Presentations may also include:
  • Videos on Japan topics
  • Musical performances
  • Interactive activities such as origami
  • Informational materials such as maps and pamphlets for your classroom
Teachers may request a presentation on a specific topic related to Japan. The program is offered at no cost to the teachers or the school. However, teachers may be asked to provide some supplies such as a whiteboard and a projector.

Visits can be scheduled Monday-Friday between 10:00am and 4:00pm. Please send request forms at least one month in advance of desired presentation dates.
