Institut français du Japon

Institut français du Japon (IFJ) is the official French government center of language and culture in Japan, attached to the French Embassy in Japan.

The Institut français du Japon works to share the French language and culture, by relying on its network of five branches, in six cities: Tokyo, Yokohama, Kyoto, Osaka, Fukuoka, and Naha.

Promoting French culture is also made possible by the mobility of creators, thanks to its artist residency Villa Kujoyama (Kyoto), and student mobility in using its Campus France office (Tokyo and Kyoto), responsible for promoting and providing information on French higher education offered in Japan.

With the four Alliances Françaises (Nagoya, Sapporo, Sendai, Tokushima), the two international French high schools (Lycée français) in Tokyo and Kyoto, as well as the Japan Research Institute at the Franco-Japanese House (Umifre 19 MEAE-CNRS), the IFJ forms one of the largest French cultural networks in Asia.
