Japan In Your Classroom (JIYC)

Our Japan in Your Classroom (JIYC) scheme has been running since 1991 and continues to be one of our core activities. Under the scheme, Japanese volunteers visit primary and secondary schools to introduce aspects of Japanese life and culture, and share Japan-related skills.


The Japan Society Review

The Japan Society Review is published on a bimonthly basis, both online and printed.

Since the starting of the publication in 2006, each issue covers a selection of Japan-related books and films, as well as theatre and stage productions, tv series and exhibitions.

Its purpose is to inform, entertain and encourage readers to explore the works for themselves.
