Language Training: There are many language schools offering Japanese classes to foreign students all over Japan and some feature shorter, 2-3 week courses in which a summary of Japanese culture, the economy, history, etc. are taught.
Cooking Classes: Most cooking class students are women but recently classes exclusively for men with the need to cook for themselves due to extended transfers away from their wives or differing living conditions are being held. There are also courses for retired men who feel compelled to learn to cook in case they outlive their wives and fewer and fewer Japanese men now believe that cooking is solely a female domain.
Sado: Sado is also referred to as "Tea Ceremony." It is an art in which the host entertains his or her guests by offering a cup of green tea while communicating in an unspoken language throughout the exchange. The underlying philosophy is called "ichigo ichie," meaning "enjoy every meeting, for it may be the last." Tea Ceremony is a traditional form of Japanese culture for appreciating "wabi, sabi (a quintessential Japanese notion for aesthetics)" in total silence.
Kado: Kado is Japanese flower arrangement. This art uses the flowers of the four seasons to give a feeling of comfort and pleasure to those who view the finished piece. There are various schools of kado pursuing their own unique methods in order to express the beauty of nature, whether in a grand and expansive form or in a single stem arrangement.
