Japan Foundation, London Operations Update

In line with the current advice from the UK government, The Japan Foundation, London will be temporarily changing the way it operates.

Please see below for more information. 

General Operations

The Japan Foundation, London will continue working to improve mutual understanding between the UK and Japan during this difficult time. Our opening hours will remain the same, Monday – Friday 09:30 – 17:30. However, most of our staff will be working from home and this may affect the capacity of work we are able to take on. We would like to ask for your patience and understanding. 
During this time, we recommend contacting our staff via e-mail, rather than telephone, until instructed otherwise.


The following scheduled events have been cancelled: 

Manga Workshop Masterclass with Shango
