JFLA COVID-19 Response

Following recommendations from the City of Los Angeles, the Japan Foundation, Los Angeles is now closed temporarily to the public until further notice. All public programs and events we planned to host at our location in mid-Wilshire have been canceled at this time. Our JF Nihongo Japanese Language Courses have been moved online for the rest of the current winter term.

We are currently exploring ways for you to enjoy our vast resources of Japanese language and culture virtually, and we will be sure to let you know about these initiatives.

JFLA will continue to monitor the situation and assess the need to continue the closure of our public spaces and will notify you immediately of any updates by email, website, and through our social media platforms. If you have any specific inquiries during this time, please feel free to contact us using the form at the following link: https://www.jflalc.org/contact. We look forward to welcoming you back to JFLA soon.
