The Nippon Communications Foundation has established a new foundation purpose reaffirming our commitment to contributing to society in ways that benefit everyone. In line with this, we have relaunched our foundation homepage to better highlight our goals and activities.


Our new purpose is:


The Nippon Communications Foundation

Sharing Insight, Connecting People, and Supporting Communication About Japan


We share Japan with the world. With our website, available in seven key global languages including Japanese, we offer a nonprofit, nongovernmental perspective on all things Japanese to a global readership. Our team of translators and editors includes native speakers of all our languages with decades in and deep knowledge of today’s Japan, dedicated to sharing it clearly with the world.



We connect people, organizations, and more to enhance Japan’s communication with the rest of the world. As a public interest foundation, we seek to contextualize Japan in the global community as we craft opportunities for Japan and its partners worldwide to consider and discuss the issues that face us all.



We work with Japan’s top communicators and idea-makers who want to share their insight with the world, and with everyone around the globe who wants to connect with Japan. We also offer training and skills to people who want to work at the forefront of this intercultural arena, further supporting those who strive to build lasting connections.
