Who are “Nikkei & Japanese Abroad”?
We run the Nikkeis at home and abroad in order to support the various activities.
There are some 3.5 million persons of Japanese descent currently living outside Japan. This population of overseas Japanese has an important role to play in international understanding and international exchange. The Association of Nikkei & Japanese Abroad (Kaigai Nikkeijin Kyokai) seeks to provide a bridge between overseas Japanese and Japan itself. The aim of the Association is to harness the efforts of Japanese people throughout the world in promoting a better understanding of Japan through a variety of exchange programs and joint cooperation initiatives.
