School Visits

Hyogo Cultural Centre invites WA student groups to visit us to learn more about Japan, particularly the special relationship between Western Australia and Hyogo Prefecture.

There is a Japanese traditional room set up with tatami mats and shoji screens in our Centre and you can also see many other display items. Some realia that may catch your eye includes beautiful Japanese wedding kimono, calligraphy, kites, dolls, kendo equipment, a tea ceremony setting and much, much more. Depending on the time of year, special seasonal and festival displays, such as the Dolls Festival and Children’s Day Festival, can be admired while the students learn about Japanese life and culture. Hyogo Cultural Centre also has the largest resource library of Japan related materials in Perth, so maybe you could organise a research day out. Or your students can watch a Japanese video or DVD on a large screen!

Although bookings are essential, student groups are welcome to visit the Centre for a general viewing for FREE. We would also be more than happy to organise an enjoyable and educational Japan related activity for a small fee per student.

Should you wish to discuss your school excursion or make a booking, please contact us on 9385 9002 or email Please note that bookings are only available on Tuesdays through to Saturdays as the office is closed on Mondays and Sundays.
