The San Fernando Valley Japanese Language Institute was started in 1924 under the auspices of 13 original members of the Shikishima club, to promote the Japanese language, culture and place for social gathering. Celebrating 86 years of service to the community, we are the largest Japanese school in the San Fernando Valley, with an average enrollment of 75 students.
