Founded in 1907, the Japan Society is a nonprofit organization uniting the people of Japan and the United States through its more than 100 annual events. The society makes its home in a landmark building near the United Nations. Designed by architect Junzo Yoshimura, the facility was the city’s first to be opened by a leading Japanese architect. Inside, a 262-seat theater hosts a range of performing arts from Japan, including contemporary theater, pop music, and contemporary and traditional dance. The organization also hosts a series of lectures and art exhibitions.
