Japanese in Perth

Japanese people first arrived in Australia in the 1870s and have continued to do so ever since. The 2011 census recorded 35,378 Japanese-born residents in Australia, with 50,761 people reporting Japanese ancestry. In fact, Perth boasts a proud population of 3,000 Japanese people and they have embraced the city as their home. From Japanese cultural events to the existence of the Hyogo Garden, the city of Perth certainly honours its Japanese heritage. So, if you would like to connect with this Asian community, take advantage of new professional opportunities and even make the most out of your travels to Japan, you should start learning Japanese right away. Sign up for a language course today and we will prepare lessons that we can adapt to your needs and requirements!

Why Study Japanese in Perth

For Work: Did you know that learning Japanese can help you get a new job in Perth? After all, Japan imports from Australia amounted to $35.62 billion during 2020, with major products including passenger vehicles, refined petroleum and goods vehicles. Thus, people working in these fields should start learning Japanese to take advantage of opportunities at home and overseas. But if you are looking to establish your own business abroad and make connections with businesspeople from Japan, you can get in touch with the Australia Japan Society of Western Australia. This is a voluntary association, founded in 1974, that organises workshops and networking events where you can meet entrepreneurs of Japanese origin. Connect with them using your new language skills and establish close business bonds!

For Culture: Of course, another reason to learn Japanese is to experience and understand this ancient and fascinating culture, and there are many instances for doing so around Perth. For example, you can take part in the Perth Japan Festival, a cultural event held every summer (around February or March) that includes Japanese food stalls, small goods and exhibits of cultural information. Enjoy performances of Japanese martial arts, music and pop culture! And you can also participate in the workshops and events by the Japanese Association of Western Australia, such as their New Year Japanese Gala. This event encourages the celebration of the Japanese heritage and traditions in Australia via dinner and games before New Years’ Eve. Don’t miss out on this chance to deepen your knowledge about Japanese culture and traditions and make the most of them by learning some of the language beforehand!

For Social: Meeting new friends with a similar interest in Japanese is also possible in the city. For example, you can join in the weekly events hosted by the Perth Japanese Language and Culture Club, a language exchange group that gets together frequently to hold conversations in Japanese. They welcome anyone with an interest in Japanese, so don’t be shy and put everything you learn in your lessons with Language Trainers into play! It does not matter if you are just starting out with the language; what matters is your desire to learn and improve. In addition to their weekly language exchange events, they organise dinner and karaoke at themed restaurants and bars. Sing along to contemporary Japanese songs using your flawless pronunciation! You can also join the Perth Japan Community Facebook group, which features events and news relevant to the Japanese-speaking community living in Perth.
