Japan Society




Introduction about us

     Hi everyone, we are a social society for anyone interested in the Japanese Culture or who are Japanese.

     Ultimately the society aims to allow members to learn about Japanese cultures (Traditional and Modern) as well as meet new people, bond with them and make the university experience more enjoyable.

     We intend to host events aimed at enriching members as well as entertaining you guys!

     We host games nights, origami workshop, and movie nights that aims to introduce you to the Japanese media, such as the local films, dramas and popular shows. We host social events that will aim to bring people that share interests in the culture together and facilitate social interactions, such as dinner night. We also announce information about careers in Japan for native Japanese.

      However, for 2020/2021, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, most of the events will be held online, especially for semester 1. We are hoping to do face-to-face activities as well, by following the goverment regulations and student union rules.


Committee members in 2020-2021:

     President: Ayuki Shimpo
     Treasurer: Rio Shimizu
     Vice President: James Kim
