We are honored to announce we’ve been given the excellence prize in the field of early childhood education and care of the 68th Yomiuri Education Award 2019 for our activities.


Our activities are called the promotion of health and communication through taste classes, with enhanced five senses focus for 2- and 3 year-old children.

The Yomiuri Education Award is one of the most distinguished awards in the field of education in Japan.

Even though our activities are still limited to seven nurseries and one kindergarten in Kyoto, we are very much encouraged by the award to promote taste classes using the SAPERE method in Japan in the future.
