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.
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
