Supported by income from the JTH Charitable Trust we are keen to help schools with the
purchase of resources that will bring Japan into the curriculum. This may be by
purchasing authentic food, snacks, soft drinks, origami paper etc., from the Japan Centre
www.japancentre.com or by providing any other items that will bring the
lessons alive and will enthuse your youngsters. We could also support educational visits
with a Japanese theme e.g., transport to local cultural events, exhibitions etc., or by
paying the expenses of an appropriate speaker. Basically, anything that will help to
promote a better understanding of Japan and its culture and customs to Scottish young
