The Southeast Japanese School & Community Center was founded in 1925 as a cultural institute to promote the Japanese language and culture. The Center, originally known as Norwalk Gakuen, began as a Japanese language school and was renamed Southeast Gakuen in 1967. Presently, we offer a variety of Japanese cultural classes and activities for all ages. We are a non-profit organization and all of our activities are open to anyone regardless of race or religion. Membership dues are required for participation in the classes.

For information on any of the classes or activities, please contact SEJSCC at (562) 863-5996 or e-mail us at:
