Japan Foundation (Japan)
Sharing and Promoting Japanese Culture and Language with people throughout the world
The Japan Foundation is the first organization that specializes in international cultural exchange in Japan. By presenting diverse aspects of Japanese culture, we create platforms of communication and understanding between the peoples of the world and Japan.
Arts and culture—such as fine arts, performing arts, literature, films, food and fashion (human exchange, youth exchange) —inspire interest in different values and virtues. They give insights into how people think, act, and communicate, and nurture mutual understanding that transcends language and stereotypes. The Japan Foundation creates opportunities for people all over the world to encounter Japanese art and culture by supporting artists, presenting works, and creating international networks.
