Dear Friends of Japan Society Toyota Language Center,

Dear Friends of Japan Society Toyota Language Center,

I am saddened to announce that Reiko Sassa, long-time Director of Japan Society’s Toyota Language Center, has passed away.

Under Ms. Sassa’s leadership, the Toyota Language Center grew from a single class into one of the most respected language education programs in the nation.

Ms. Sassa joined Japan Society as Assistant Librarian in 1977. Soon after, she began to grow the organization’s modest program into a full-fledged language center. In 1982, she was appointed Language Center Coordinator and Head Librarian, and was featured in an article in The New York Times about Japanese women succeeding professionally in New York. Ms. Sassa became the Director of Toyota Language Center in 1986, when the center became an official Japan Society department. Over the years, she also continued to maintain the library’s exceptional collection of English and Japanese books.

Succeeding Ms. Sassa is Ms. Tomoyo Kamimura, former coordinator of The New School's Japanese program. Ms. Kamimura served as Interim Director of the Language Center during the summer of 2013, during Ms. Sassa’s leave of absence. She has been affiliated with the Toyota Language Center, in various capacities, since 2004. With her familiarity with the Toyota Language Center, extensive experience in language instruction and education administration, we are confident that she will continue Ms. Sassa’s legacy and maintain the Center’s reputation of excellence.

We will remember Ms. Sassa’s distinguished contribution to Japan Society, and extend our heartfelt condolences to her family.

Sincerely,



Motoatsu Sakurai, President
