Irasshaimase! Congratulations to all members, new and old, on joining for what will surely be another fantastic year of Japan-o-mania. Our ongoing aim is to help foster the exchange of culture, language and information between Japanese and local students in Western Australia. While many of our members have some Japanese academic background, we certainly encourage anyone who is interested in the language or culture to get involved in our events, even if you don't speak a word of the language as many of the Japanese people attending our functions seek to learn about Australian culture and English. So what are you waiting for? Get moving! Get involved! Get JAPSSOCed!!


The Japanese Studies Society at the University of Western Australia has a charter of fostering the exchange of culture, language, and information among Japanese and local students in Western Australia. With a history spanning more than 35 years, the society has become a respected and vital medium for academic, social, and professional interaction on campus, and in the community at large. In 2002, the club was part of the founding group of societies collaborating with the Consulate General of Japan in Perth to create the Friends of Japan network combining the information resources of the professional community, Japanese ex-patriot, and Japanese Exchange communities with our own in pursuit of our aforementioned goals.

Our Vision

This is going to be a big year, we have a dedicated and energetic committee, all willing to go that extra mile to make things happen. This year there is alot going on, so if you feel you want to get involved, there are always ways you to can get involved. Don't be afraid to contact us, or pop your head into the club room or Kaiwa.
