Meeting and Exchange

One of Hyogo Cultural Centre’s most important roles is to facilitate personal contacts between West Australians and people from Hyogo and Japan. This involves establishing occasions for interaction with Perth’s Japanese community and local people, and also assisting in educational, sporting, cultural, economic and private exchange between WA and Hyogo.

    Dear Sir/Madam,

    My name is Candy and I am interested in learning Japanese again. I saw in the “Centre Activities” section that the centre offers Japanese language courses – would I be able to get more information regarding this, please?

    Any information/guidance is appreciated, and I thank you for your time!

    Kind Regards,

    Do you offer language classes for children?
    My son is fascinated by Japanese culture and wants to begin learning the language.

    He’s 10 years old.

      Dear Phil, thank you for your enquiry. We are not currently offering classes for children, but have considered the option of a class from 4pm to 4:45pm om a weekday. We have been doing a little surveying to determine if there would be enough interest. Please keep an eye on our website and Facebook page for any update!

    It got my interest about Japanese cultural workshop, especially flower arrangement. Does it mean it includes in the workshop about the Ikebana, Japanese art flower arrangement? I am new as a florist at https://www.flowerauction.com.au/ and I want to learn more about flower arrangement.

      Hello Allan, we have certainly held ikebana workshops in the past, but it is not something we do regularly. You may like to search Perth Sogetsu Ikebana to learn more about what they do. We also have the Japan Festival in Perth City on March 9 from 11am to 6pm. The Sogetsu Association will also exhibit there.
