The Australia Japan Society of NSW Incorporated (AJS-NSW) was founded in Sydney in 1968. It is a not-for-profit, non-political organization, incorporated under the Associations Incorporation Act (ABN: 54 519 437 753).

AJS-NSW is affiliated with the The National Federation of Australia-Japan Societies (www.austjapanfed.org.au), which is the peak body in Australia for the promotion of Australia-Japan cultural, public affairs and educational activities.There are equivalent but independent State Societies and affiliated groups in all major centres in each Australian state. There are also a number of counterpart societies, based in Japan.

The main aim of the Society is to promote common interest and mutual understanding and goodwill between the peoples of Australia and Japan - at all levels. The activities of AJS-NSW in pursuit of these objectives are wide and varied.

The activities of AJS-NSW are funded by membership fees and function activities.
