  • Brief History: About: Japan Society
    States in the 1920s and 1930s the Society steadfastly refused to take a political stance preferring education to advocacy Nonetheless Japan Society worked with other internationalist groups such as the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace or the America Japan Society of Tokyo to increase contact between Americans and Japanese at all levels The Society s Annual Dinner became a venue for leading Japanese statesmen to give major addresses on the state of the U S Japan relationship Despite the Society s efforts political crisis exploded into war in 1941 The Society closed its doors as did all other Japan American exchange groups Yet the seeds of cooperation and goodwill were not extinguished by war and in 1952 at the end of the American Occupation the Society was reborn largely through the efforts of President John D Rockefeller 3rd and Executive Director Douglas Overton The newly revitalized Society redoubled its efforts to educate Americans about Japan by expanding its lecture series continuing to publish respected works on Japan and by facilitating the study of Japanese students in New York The foresight of John D Rockefeller 3rd resulted in the construction of Japan House in 1971 across the street from the United Nations With a gallery auditorium library and classroom space the Society during the 1970s and 1980s expanded its programming to include groundbreaking exhibitions sold out performances of traditional and classical Japanese dance and music major film series a comprehensive language program and a vibrant lecture series covering topics ranging from corporate and policy issues to Japanese popular culture Japan Society today continues to play a leading role in U S Japan relations Over the past decade it has continued to increase programming reaching out to business leaders and school children alike In the future Japan Society will remain a trendsetter
