2020 Summer Resources

Team Nishimachi

We know that many families, who might travel to home countries or take trips to explore new ones, are staying in Japan this summer. We have gathered information about online and in-person summer opportunities and we hope you find activities that will keep your kids active and engaged over the summer.
