The Israel-Japan Friendship Society main objective is to bring Japanese culture to the Israeli audience.
IJFS members are holding various relations to Japan; for some, Japanese culture is part of their daily business routine. For others, affiliations and connections to Japan are held through personal interests, whether experienced or yet to experience Japan itself. Our shared work facilitating and promoting Japanese culture in Israel contributes our members, as well as others interested in cultural engagement.
We call whoever finds himself or herself aquivalent with our categories to join us and cooperate to promote cultural friendship.
