MIT Women's League

MIT Japanese Wives Group

The MIT Japanese Wives Group plans activities for its members both on- and off-campus. The "Joy of Cooking" class gives Japanese visitors the chance to learn American-style cooking in informal sessions led by League members in their own kitchens. The "Friendship Partner" program arranges meetings for MIT individuals or groups who want to share their language and culture with a Japanese woman. This program offers Japanese women new friendships and the chance to build self-confidence and communication skills.

The group's activities also extend to Japan. Members returning home to Japan meet regularly and help MIT arrivals with cultural and language exchange.

To learn more about meetings and schedules, contact Kimie Shirasaki at or call the League office at 617.253.3656. Those who are returning to Japan should contact Chizu Ikeda at or Megumi Enokido about meetings.
