The Japan Society

Education Supporters

The Japan Society education programme has been developed out of a belief in the value to young people in the UK of growing up with an awareness and understanding of Japan and its culture. In addition to historical and business reasons for learning about a key international partner, there are more general benefits of broadening horizons and raising aspirations.

Through its activities for schools, the Society supports teachers who may have limited experience of Japan themselves in providing these opportunities for their students. Throughout the year, the Society’s education team provides advice and resources to schools engaged in teaching and learning activities relating to Japan. 

The Japan Society is most grateful to the following corporate donors which have designated all or part of their donation in support of the schools education and small grants programmes.
