The Japan Foundation, New Delhi introduces a diverse variety of facets of Japanese culture, from art, music, drama, and film to design, to India and South Asian countries. Through arts and culture, we convey Japan’s heart and mind to the world, helping people encounter Japan even beyond the language barrier. We also aim to spread the joy of artistic creation, especially by creating opportunities where artists could collaborate thereby deepening people-to-people exchange and mutual understanding.
