Antioch College and the Village of Yellow Springs enjoy a long and storied connection with Japan. The Village welcomed and sponsored families from internment camps during World War II, Antioch professor Earle Reynolds served on the U.S. Atomic Bomb Casualty Commission in Hiroshima after the war (which led to the founding of the World Friendship Center), and Antioch professor Harold Wright established of the College’s exchange program with Kyoto Seika University. Reflecting this strong legacy, Japanese is one of three languages offered at Antioch College.
Ohayo Ohio is generously supported by the Japan Foundation and the Yellow Springs Community Foundation.
