The aims of the society

Founded in 1960, the New Zealand-Japan Society of Auckland is “a two-way bridge between two countries”. Our primary goals are:

  • The promotion of understanding and good will between the people of Japan and New Zealand.
  • The study of Japanese culture, both traditional and modern.
  • To establish liaisons and promote cultural exchanges with Japanese individuals, groups and institutions.
  • To extend hospitality to Japanese visitors to New Zealand and provide information for members and others proposing to visit Japan.
