●A message from our President

President  Kiyotaka Akasaka

Thank you for visiting our website. The Foreign Press Center / Japan ( FPCJ ) works to assist news gathering by the foreign press in Japan and the sending out of information from Japan to other countries. This information includes, for example, preparing for large-scale disaster in light of the lessons learned from 3.11; overcoming environmental pollution and the effects on human health; tackling the declining birth rate and the aging of the population; cutting-edge technology; traditional culture, and value system. We would like to deliver and share with the world Japan’s experiences and strong points.
Even though information from Japan is said to be decreasing in quality and quantity, we will keep up our efforts to bring “Japan as it really is” to the world through our networking with foreign media and our accumulated know-how. We hope to give in-depth understanding of Japan, and help create an international society where people respect different cultures and values. We also aim to make a difference in global peace and development.

President
Kiyotaka Akasaka
