Strengthening the Australia-Japan Relationship 

The Australia-Japan Society of Victoria (AJSV) is a volunteer-run, not-for-profit organisation that promotes connections between Victoria and Japan. Since 1963, the AJSV has been a conduit for strengthening cultural, educational, business and social ties in the Australia-Japan relationship. The society conducts a number of annual activities that range from high-profile, formal occasions to grass-roots, community level events. All our society’s activities and initiatives are conducted with the objective of bringing the people of Victoria and Japan closer together. For more information about our activities, take a look at our events page.

Become a Member

The AJSV is not-for-profit so we rely on individual and corporate memberships to cover our costs as well as the efforts of our volunteers to run events. If you’ve got an interest in Japan why not consider becoming a member or joining our friendly team of volunteers? Our services and events are offered at reduced prices or free to our members so if you're living in Victoria and you’re passionate about Japan, or if you’re a Japanese person staying here who would like to meet friendly locals, please have a look at our membership page to see the membership packages available.
