Australia-Japan Society of NSW


Welcome to the Australia-Japan Society of NSW

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, details of which are listed here and on our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/AJSNSW/.

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.

Vale David Jacobs AM

The Australia-Japan Society of NSW extends its sincere condolences to the family and colleagues of our former President, David Jacobs AM, who passed away on 16 November 2020. David served as a member of the Board of the Society from 2001 to 2015 including as President from 2006 to 2009.

He is sadly missed as a friend and advisor to many of our members, and his enthusiasm for the Australia-Japan relationship leaves a legacy that will doubtless extend many years into the future. More information:  AJBCC website.


NSW - Japan Stories Project

We are calling for expressions of interest from people who'd like to be involved in a project to document stories of the NSW Japan relationship. There are some absolutely wonderful stories which deserve to be remembered and shared - before these stories are lost!

You may like to offer support in documenting the stories, ideas on how we do it, or to be involved in other ways. We are also keen to identify the stories - from people whose lives have been impacted by Japan or NSW, personally, economically, psychologically, professionally. English or Japanese OK. Please email Board member Diane Vukelic.

Membership

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.

Membership is open to all who support the mission of the Society.

There are various categories of membership. See here for details.
