Sharing the joys of Japanese art

The Society for Japanese Art (SJA) was founded in 1937. It currently has about 600 members, including prominent museums and institutions, in 24 countries. The Society aims to provide an inspiring platform for sharing knowledge and experience regarding every aspect of the visual and applied arts of Japan.
