ICBunko world-wide

ICBA is a nonprofit organization which supports Bunko activities to maintain a child’s second language and culture, through reading and enjoying, together with the children, high quality children’s books in a foreign language (or Japanese).
In 2012, there are 10 various Bunko in Japan (English, French, and Spanish), and world-wide over 50 Japanese Bunko in the UK, Australia, China, Germany, France, USA, Brazil, and Indonesia.
The first Japanese Bunko, Korisu Bunko, was established in London in 1983 after Mrs Dunn (the founder of the first Bunko in Tokyo and Honorary President of ICBA) returned to the UK after having lived in Japan for many years.
