Every summer, Hinoki Foundation sponsors a weekend camping trip, where students of Japanese and English gather for fellowship and language learning. With fishing, swimming, and games, Hinoki Camp is an exciting way for children to practice bilingual skills in a supportive environment.
Hinoki Foundation sponsors social gatherings called “Hinoki Kai,” to encourage peer-to-peer interaction between native speakers of Japanese and English. Hinoki-Kai events always incorporate a language-learning element, to promote real-life application and development of bilingual language skills.
Hinoki Cup is a bilingual quiz-game for 3rd- to 9th-graders, who are either native or non-native learners of Japanese and English. Its goal is to give younger students an exciting venue to demonstrate their language ability and boost their motivation to continue their study of both languages.
