Bonding with the World through Japanese Culture
Japanese culture is gaining more international attention with Mt. Fuji designated as a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Site, Washoku cuisine listed to Intangible Cultural Heritage, and the ideas of mottainai and omotenashi becoming accepted worldwide.
The Japan Foundation is deepening ties between Japan and the world by introducing Japanese culture as a bridge to interact with people overseas. We facilitate mutual understanding and trust, especially among the younger generation.
