Sweden-Japan Foundation was established in 1971 and SJF has since then assisted in promoting relations between Sweden and Japan. We try to reach out to a wide range of individuals, companies, media and politicians involved in the fostering of good international relations in order to provide information and to exchange views on Japan.

We promote a deeper and broader long-term exchange by giving young people the opportunity to visit Japan for studies, research or internship. With this activity, we hope to help building the network of tomorrow.

Information service

Each day the SJF receives many inquiries about studies, business, contact establishments, etc,  in Japan. SJF provides information about organizations co-operating with Japan, studies in Japan, scholarships, authorized language schools and internships.

Furthermore, in order to obtain up-to-date information, the SJF participates in exhibitions, fairs and other promotional activities concerning studies and business in Japan.
