A non-profit cultural organisation, the Japan Foundation promotes cultural exchange between Japan and other countries — and we're lucky enough to  have the Australian chapter right here in Sydney. Located in Central Park, the space offers a huge range of events and programs, spanning not only exhibitions and talks, but also Japanese language courses and grant programs. The Sydney outpost of the foundation boasts three distinct departments: arts and culture, Japanese language education and Japanese studies. On the art side of things, the gallery exhibits both traditional and contemporary Japanese art, while the library houses over 18,000 Japanese publications.

The Japan Foundation's office is open 9am–5pm Monday–Friday, while its library is open 10am–6pm. During exhibitions, the gallery is open 10am–6pm Monday–Friday and 10–4pm on Saturdays.
