About us

RHUL JapanSoc supports both Japanese students and students interested in Japanese language and/or culture. We provide opportunities for native Japanese-speaking and native English-speaking students to learn from each other and develop cross-cultural friendships.

We also teach introductory Japanese language and culture lessons to all with an interest. If you have an interest in Japanese language, culture, history, food, geography, etc, JapanSoc might be for you!

For Japanese people, if you want a safe place to interact with, learn from, and build friendships in a friendly and fun environment, please consider joining!
