My Japan, My Britain

In 2013 we marked the 400th anniversary of Anglo-Japanese relations with the Japan400 project. One of the ways in which we celebrated this many-sided and dynamic relationship was with My Japan, My Britain – a collection of first-hand accounts celebrating the mutual interest, respect and admiration that the British and Japanese continue to share. We asked people who, in one way or another, have one foot in Japan and one foot in Britain to tell us about what first attracted them to the other culture, and what it means to them today. These are stories of inspiration, humour, creativity, and of challenges overcome.

My Japan My Britain was originally hosted on the Japan400 website, and we are very grateful to the original contributors and coordinators for allowing us to transfer the content over to the Japan Society website.
