The Japan Society is the leading independent body in the United Kingdom dedicated to the enhancement of the British-Japanese relationship. With a history stretching back to 1891, its members are committed to promoting deep and lasting understanding between our two countries.
The Society’s main objectives are:
- To promote learning and advance education in the subject of and with regard to Japan.
- To promote the study of Japan and its people in all their aspects, traditional and modern, and to make the results of such study more accessible to the general public.
- To promote the study of Britain and its culture by Japanese people and to further educational exchanges between Britain and Japan.
The Japan Society has a membership of some 1000 members both individual and corporate, of whom 45% are Japanese. Its varied programme provides opportunities for members and others interested in Japan to meet and exchange ideas and experience. Its work with schools throughout the UK and small grants scheme to support local projects both serve to encourage and deepen understanding of Japan.
