#EdamameChamp is an annual chopstick skill competition to promote healthy ways of eating through Japanese cuisine and to also raise funds to provide food education programs to children. This year, The Japan Foundation, Los Angeles is happy to announce our first online #EdamameChamp event, which will be hosted with TABLE FOR TWO USA.
The Japan Foundation, Los Angeles (JFLA) is collaborating with American Assocation of Teachers of Japanese (AATJ) for a month long project on Instagram to unite and support Japanese language learners from the US and Beyond! It is called #みんなでがんばりマスク project and we hope to have as much Japanese language learners to participate! The project goal is to fill the JFLA Instagram in May with posts that reflect at least one of the following themes: hope, community, appreciation, and encouragement!
