Japanese in Denver
From dragon boats to bonsai, kimchi to kimonos, Denver has come into its own as a welcoming home of Asian culture. The Japanese community living in Denver has shaped its cultural and historical landscape since the 19th century, when many immigrants arrived in the city as railroad workers. For example, the area around Sakura Square has been a center of Japanese culture since the 1940s, and while only a few vestiges of what was once Denver's Japanese neighborhood remain, this city still hosts the Cherry Blossom Festival and ancient tea ceremonies. Study Japanese today and you will be able to take advantage of every social, cultural and professional opportunity available to Japanese fluent speakers in Denver. Just get in touch with us at Language Trainers and we will start designing a course that suits your requirements and preferences, no matter how busy your schedule!
Why Study Japanese in Denver
For Work: Learning Japanese in Denver can give your career a boost, especially if you are looking for a new job. Several Japanese companies with headquarters in Denver, like Panasonic, Sakura Square LLC, and Webroot, highly value bilingual employees and are always looking for new candidates to add to their teams, especially those that speak Japanese. Also, if you want to establish your business in Japan, you should get in touch with the Japan America Society of Colorado on Grant Street. This is a non-profit organization, with a focus on business and public affairs, that aims to promote mutual understanding between Japan and Colorado. Attend their monthly events (like the Pacific Mercantile Forum) and impress the attendees of Japanese origin with your new language skills.
For Culture: And if you are more interested in experiencing this ancient Asian culture, you will be happy to know you have plenty of opportunities for doing so around Denver. For example, the traditional Sho-Fu-En Japanese Garden at the Denver Botanic Gardens is a tranquil spot that can make you feel as though you were relaxing somewhere in Japan itself. This place hosts tea ceremonies carried out in Japanese, so learn about this millennia-old tradition and tea-making techniques after taking some lessons with us at Language Trainers! And if you are more interested in sports, why don’t you take part in the annual Dragon Boat Race, sponsored by the Japanese American Society? You do not need prior paddling experience to participate, as the focus is on having a good time on the water and keeping the Japanese culture alive.
For Social: Your knowledge of Japanese will also help you socialize with others who share your passion for this ancient language. For instance, you can join the Japan America Society of CO Kaiwa Club, a bi-weekly gathering for native and non-native Japanese speakers to use their skills in a relaxed space. They welcome all levels of proficiency, so you can attend their meetings even if you have just started with your language course. And if you love video games and are interested in meeting like-minded people, you should attend the Nan Desu Kan, a festival that mixes Japanese animation and videogames with cosplay. In 2017, this convention attracted more than 500 anime and games fans, so don’t hesitate to attend this event to make new friends with similar interests
