About Asia Society Japan
Asia Society is the leading educational organization dedicated to promoting mutual understanding and strengthening partnerships among the individuals, leaders, and institutions of Asia and the United States in a global context. Across the fields of arts, business, culture, education, and policy, the Society provides insight, generates ideas, and promotes collaboration to address present challenges and create a shared future.
Founded in 1956 by John D. Rockefeller 3rd, Asia Society is a nonpartisan, nonprofit institution with major centers and public buildings in New York, Hong Kong, and Houston, and offices in Los Angeles, Manila, Mumbai, San Francisco, Seoul, Shanghai, Sydney, Tokyo, Washington, D.C., and Zurich.
Asia Society Japan Center, located at the International House of Japan, has opened to share and further strengthen the fundamental goals Asia Society values. At a time when Japan needs to be more strongly engaged with Asia, Asia Society Japan will play an important role in connecting Japan to leaders, ideas, and innovations shaping Asia and America today.
