The Japan Society, a non-profit organisation with a history stretching back to 1891, is the leading body in the United Kingdom dedicated to the enhancement of the British-Japanese relationship.

Our members are committed to promoting deep and lasting understanding between our two countries. Our strength lies in a broad based membership of individuals and organisations.

We currently have a membership of over 1,000 members, both individual and corporate, of whom some 50% are Japanese. Join us today!
