Welcome to the Israeli Association for Japanese Studies website!

The Israeli Association for Japanese Studies (IAJS) is a non-profit organization established in February 2012.

IAJS aims to address the growing academic interest in Israel in the field of Japanese studies, and the need for better coordination among the various researchers and academic institutions working in the field.

 IAJS seeks to encourage Japanese-related research and dialogue in Israel, to promote Japanese language education, organize symposiums, workshops and conferences in the field of Japanese studies, and advance the academic ties and collaboration between Japanese studies associations and academic institutions abroad.

The association is open to researchers, students and anyone interested in Japanese studies and language.

You are welcome to join IAJS and help create a lively academic community for Japanese studies in Israel.
