We are an advanced English club in Hiroshima, Japan, chartered in October 2020. We currently operate on Zoom only. Our main goal is to learn better from the Pathways Learning Experience.
With our club slogan that "We aspire to greater learning from Pathways", we aim to make learning of communication and leadership from Pathways fun and efficient.
The phoenix is a symbol of Hiroshima, a city of peace that has risen from the ruins of an atomic bomb, and it represents our members’ desire for a peaceful world as well as their desire to use what they learn in this club to help make that desire come closer to a reality.

June 2023 "Choosing Life" Let's meet Leslie and talk about peace!
The special online event was successfully completed. We are grateful that many people joined the event. It was a great opportunity to talk about peace and peacemaking and to emphasize with each other across borders.
Leslie says: "My belief is that looking at nuclear weapons at the scale of individual human lives may be effective to convince people of the need to ban such horrors in a way that political arguments have not been."
