Japanese Studies and Intellectual Exchange

The Japan Foundation supports and promotes Japanese studies abroad so people overseas can deepen their understanding about Japan.
We also provide opportunities for people from Japan and other countries to discuss important global issues and topics of mutual concern. This helps Japan to better express its views and foster the next generation to carry on future dialogues and exchanges.
