To mark the publication of Biographical Portraits VIII, the Japan Society is holding a special book launch in collaboration with the Japan Foundation, with accompanying talks by the editor and key contributors. Presentations will last for approximately fifty minutes, to give attendees a flavour of some of the personalities featured in this  volume. The formal proceedings will be followed by a short Q & A session.

This book forms part of a series of volumes which record the lives of people who have contributed in various ways to the development of UK-Japan relations. The current volume brings the Japan Society’s collection of individual memoirs to a cumulative total in excess of 400 biographical portraits.

We are delighted to be able to offer copies of Biographical Portraits VIII free of charge to members of the Japan Society while stocks last. Copies will be available to collect on the night. Members who are unable to attend the launch may obtain a copy from the Japan Society office on request, either in person or by post at a cost of £5.00 (UK residents).

To reserve your place, please call the Japan Society office on 020 7828 6330 or email or submit the online booking form.
