Australia Japan Society – New South Wales

The Australia Japan Society of NSW Incorporated was founded in Sydney in 1968.

The co-patrons of the Society are The Premier of New South Wales and The Consul General of Japan. The Society has close links with The Japan Chamber of Commerce and Industry, The Japanese Society of Sydney and other “Japan-focused” organisations.

The Society brings the Australian and Japanese business communities together for regular functions with guest speakers who are leaders in commerce, industry, politics and government. The Society holds a business, social or cultural function each month and publishes its newsletter, Tomodachi, each quarter.

The Society organises and co-operates in many cultural events which aim to introduce Japanese members to Australia’s vibrant and diverse cultural scene while at the same time introducing Australian members to aspects of the unique culture of Japan.

From time to time the AJS will be involved with or notified of various Japan-related events around Melbourne in addition to events and functions run by the Society.

By joining the Australia-Japan Society of NSW you ensure your participation in an active group of like-minded people who care about the relationship between the peoples of Australia and Japan.

As a member you have the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of events. In recent years, discussions with speakers on topics ranging from ‘Japanese investment in Australia’ through to ‘anime’ and ‘manga’ have been held. Social and cultural events have included an annual Sumo night, the ever-popular ‘Shaberanaito’ (dinner and conversation in either Japanese or English) and barefoot bowling with members of the Japanese community.

Some very popular events have been restricted to members-only.
