The Japan Festival Foundation aims to organize Japan-oriented events on a regular basis in order to strengthen the bond between the Japanese and Dutch communities.


Main features of the policy:

The Japan Festival Foundation organizes an annual festival. The next festival takes place on the 8th of October. The details of the festival are published on the other parts of this website.

The Japan Festival Foundation finances the costs of the festival through sponsorship of institutions and companies as well as a small part from the income of sale of refreshments by third parties during the festival. The festival will only proceed if the budgeted costs are covered out of the sponsorship. The Japan Festival Foundation does not seek a capital surplus and is using all profits of the festival for the organization of the next festival.
