Tsukuba International Volunteer of NIHONGO Association (TIVONA) has made a website called "Nihongo Manabo". On this site, you can take a quiz on hiragana characters or downlaod a list of the hiragana or katakana.
TIVONA is the group of volunteer Japanese language teachers at Tsukuba Cultural Foundation. They have taught Japanese to about 2,000 foreigners from 70 different countries over the past 14 years, and they currently have about 100 students. They offer six classes: four in basic Japanese, one advanced class, and a reading and writing class.
The classes take place every Tuesday and Thursday evening from 6:30pm to 8pm at Tsukuba Capio. Foreign people who live or work in Tsukuba (or who have family living or working in Tsukuba) are eligible to join these classes.

The International Women's Network (IWN) is a group of women who enjoy chatting with people from all over the world. We hold a monthly potluck dinner where we exchange information about the local community while eating a variety of foods. No reservation is needed to attend the potluck. Just bring one dish of food and show up at the meeting. Newcomers are always welcome! Take advantage of this unique opportunity to enjoy the international city of Tsukuba with us!
