nihongo post - a family project created by hiyoko imai
Japanese arts & crafts with little artists
NIHONGO POST is a family project, originally created to keep our own son connected to his Japanese roots at our home in Amsterdam. Our simple mission is to encourage him to think, create and express his feelings freely in Japanese. NIHONGO POST activity is our tool to have him learn it naturally, playfully.
Every season we select various activities inspired by nature and Japanese culture. We love to share Japanese culture through arts and crafts for young children and their families across the world.
We have created 6 issues of digital posts for subscribers in the first year - designed for Japanese families with children (age 3+). Every issue consists of 5 contents: culture, food, craft, language and music. We share many seasonal activities to play & learn at home.
*We are currently working on making bilingual version to be available online.
our WORKSHOP is a family workshop where parents participate together with their child. Our seasonal craft activities are inspired by nature and Japanese culture. It is designed for children (5+ years old) and their families to learn & enjoy Japanese arts & crafts. Our main activities are seasonal craft, paper craft & book making. We offer good quality art materials such as Japanese washi papers, eco-friendly papers, and paints.
