About the ANU Japan Institute

The ANU Japan Institute is Australia’s largest network of distinguished and emerging scholars with professional expertise on Japan. We research and teach in disciplines spanning art, economics, environment, health, history, international relations, language, law, linguistics, politics, regulation and Japanese Studies. 

Our mission, as part of Australia’s national university, is to be a national resource: to contribute to public policy by strengthening knowledge of Japan among schools, universities, public institutions, government and the private sector, and to promote the centrality of Australia-Japan relations in Australia’s Asian Century.
