“Japan-in-a-Suitcase” is a new teaching tool for Alabama elementary schools. The suitcase contains traditional Japanese clothing, books, music cassettes, video tapes, and other regalia to introduce Japan’s culture to the young children of Alabama. These suitcases are available to educators for rental, or a JASA representative will visit classrooms and after-school programs so that students may learn about Japan!
We are currently developing various curricula for the Japan in a Suitcase program. We offer different presentations for elementary, middle, and high school students, as well as specialized programs for university students.
