The Australia-Japan Society of NSW Incorporated (AJS-NSW) aims to bring together Australian and Japanese people living in NSW to explore mutual interests.

AJS-NSW holds regular business, social and cultural functions, and publishes a quarterly newsletter, Tomodachi.

Our business events have guest speakers who are leaders in commerce, industry, politics and government, and focus on issues relevant to the Australia-Japan business relationship. 

Our cultural events aim to explore aspects of Japanese culture and history, often within the perspective of Australia's vibrant and diverse cultural scene. 

Popular social functions include 'Shaberanaito' language nights in Japanese and English, and our annual Sumo party. 

AJS-NSW also supports the study of Japanese language and culture in NSW through awards and other activities.
