Japan Society is America's leading resource on Japan. Founded in 1907, this private, nonprofit, nonpolitical institution brings together key Japanese and American individuals in programs devoted to the arts, business, education and public affairs. In recent years, the Society's focus has increasingly reflected a broader Asian and global context in U.S.-Japan relations. Its main purpose, however, has remained unchanged--to deepen understanding and promote enlightened relations between America and Japan.
