Japanese Culture and Wellbeing

Now more than ever it’s important to look after our mental and physical health. The Japanese Culture and Wellbeing resources are structured around the NHS ‘5 Ways to Wellbeing’ with an individual lesson to introduce students to each of the ‘ways’ and to promote positive wellbeing through studying aspects of Japanese culture.
