Book Translation Project
We have partnered up two high schoolers from opposite sides of the world to collaborate on a new children’s book. Entitled “The World is Full of Flavors”, the book is being written and illustrated by Arianna Ruhoy, and is being translated in Japanese by Mino resident Hiyori Kurimoto. The book will be written in English, Japanese hiragana, and romaji, the latter of which will help English kids learn how to read and speak Japanese.
We had our 2019 Information Session on April 27th at Showa Boston. Please watch our recorded video to know about this program
