The Japan Foundation Programs


The Japan Foundation (Kokusai Koryu Kikin) was founded in 1972, as a non-profit organization whose objective is to further international mutual understanding through the promotion of cultural exchange between Japan and other countries. For this purpose, a wide range of programs are conducted in over 180 countries.
