Japan Intercultural Intelligence (JII) is an organization with the vision to realize “cultural synergy” through fostering diversity.
We believe that “cultural synergy” can be realized when:
- People have an appreciation for other cultures while maintaining appreciation for their own culture.
- People of different backgrounds in the same community live comfortably with one another as “good neighbors”.
- New social culture and values are created in society as a result of different cultures meeting one another.
What we do
JII aims to support foreign residents in Japan from the aspects of “daily life” and “work”.
