Introducing Manga to the Classroom

Manga (comics or graphic novels) are a Japanese form of visual storytelling and are increasingly popular outside of Japan. These lessons give students an introduction to the history and cultural significance of manga in Japan and as an art form.


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.
