Want to learn Japanese culture? Practice your language skills? Or just enjoy all things Japan?

COOL NIHONGO is the perfect place for anyone interested in Japan, Japanese, and culture.


Come join us at the Japanese Friendship Garden, we meet once every month until June (except December; enjoy the holidays!) During our First Friday event, you can visit us at the Japanese Friendship Garden and enjoy beautiful Oasis in downtown. Every meet, we spend half an hour topics at comfortable indoor space (Winship House, next to the garden) in Japanese culture based on the season, as well as new topics or guest speakers. Then, we teach new words and phrases, and then we practice together!


Check-in time at Winship House: 4:50 pm

 The workshop will begin at: 5:00 pm


Your prompt arrival will ensure a more pleasurable experience not only for yourself but for the other participants as well.


The Garden is located at 1125 North 3rd Avenue, between 3rd Avenue and Latham (2 blocks North of Roosevelt). Parking is available at the garden.


When riding the Light Rail, exit at the Central and Roosevelt stop. The Garden is located on the west side of the rail, 0.3 miles from the station; it is directly behind the Irish Cultural Center (1106 N. Central Ave, Phoenix), just north of Portland Avenue. The Garden entrance is across the parking lot at 1125 N. 3rd Avenue.
