What we're about

Welcome to the JAPAN CLUB.

Few other cities boast the diverse array of ethnic enclaves and the confluence of global cultures that Sydney routinely enjoy. And the representation of Japanese culture in Sydney is no exception. From the cliché ubiquity of sushi houses to authentic and unique Japanese performing artists on tour, our group enjoys the sides of Japan that are on display in Sydney. Our events include art exhibits, J-pop concerts, sake tastings, karaoke outings, book readings, lectures, language classes, anime and manga screenings, networking events, and regular dinners at Japanese restaurants. A great group to meet others who share an interest, respect, and appreciation for all things Japan! :)

I (along with other organizers) welcome you to learn, share, love, enjoy and celebrate everything Japanese in Sydney.


1) This is not a dating event. Any members found in breach (acting or behaving) of this condition would be asked to leave and banned from our meetup permanently.

2) All members must follow the organizers as they are acting in the best interest of the group.

3) Please come and inform the organizers if any member is pushy, rude or acting in a way which is against the spirit of the group.
