Japan Week is an international cultural exchange program, dedicated to all things Japanese to spur tourism to Japan. The objective of Japan Week is to promote Japanese art and culture and create a mutual understanding and friendship with host countries. Japan Week is created in a collaboration between the International Friendship Foundation (IFF) and the host city.
