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:

  1. People have an appreciation for other cultures while maintaining appreciation for their own culture.
  2. People of different backgrounds in the same community live comfortably with one another as “good neighbors”.
  3. 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”.
