The Teutizoku Japan Desk aims to advance commercial ties between Japan and the U.S. by building a community of freelancers, entrepreneurs, and professionals across borders. We serve as a resource for American and Japanese companies and entrepreneurs seeking to expand in either market.
In addition to a reading club that helps members with their Japanese and English language skills, we host events, organize work groups to stimulate dialogue, invest in projects, and partner with stakeholders to develop international business opportunities.
Japanese/English Reading Club
The Japanese/English Reading Club is open to professionals in Japan and the U.S. with Japanese and English language skills ranging from advanced beginner to native speaker. Most reading material is free and online. We meet once a month online. You are not required to attend every session, but we do request somewhat regular attendance. Otherwise, if a participant has not attended for several months in a row, we may confirm that they no longer wish to participate to make room for someone else who has registered. We try to keep groups under 15 participants or utilize break out rooms of smaller groups to give everyone plenty of opportunity to speak during meetings. If you would like to get involved as a participant or group leader, please fill out the registration form and someone from our team will reach out to you shortly.
