Welcome to the Long Beach Japanese Cultural Center! We have been serving the Long Beach and Harbor areas for over 65 years. Our mission is to be the resource for civic events and artifacts, in addition to preserving our legacy's timeless cultural traditions. We host accessible, quality instruction in various Japanese cultural activies, including martial arts and language. Learn more about us using the menu above.
Although we will not be having a summer festival this year, we can still celebrate and learn about Japanese culture with Ondo dancing. Ondo is Japanese festival dancing. The practice and event are free of charge and open to all ages. On Wednesdays at 7:30pm, starting May 18th we will meet at the LBJCC parking lot. Instructions for the dances will be provided at each practice. Ondo dancing is meant to be fun and lively so feel free to put your own spin on the moves! We hope to see you there.
