On September 10, 2011, The Buddhist Temple of Chicago, at 1151 W. Leland Avenue in Chicago's Uptown neighborhood, will begin its 54th year of offering Japanese language classes to the public. Classes meet every Saturday from 10 AM to 12 PM, and are offered at several levels, including beginning, intermediate and advanced, as well as classes for children ages 6 and older. Classes are taught in The Buddhist Temple of Chicago by native Japanese speakers.

The temple is close to the Wilson stop of the CTA Red Line and the Ravenswood station on the METRA North Line.  The Buddhist Temple of Chicago Japanese language school has produced several famous graduates, including David Spector, who began Japanese language studies while a student at Chicago's Lane Tech High School and now hosts a popular talk show on Japanese television.
