Culture and Information Center

Welcome to the Culture and Information Center

The Culture & Information Center at the Consulate-General of Japan in Seattle is administered by the Culture & Information Section, which handles public relations, as well as cultural and educational affairs. We offer various services to promote Japanese culture to the public.

In the Center’s public space, we provide a wide variety of Japanese publications for visitors to browse, including newspapers, books, and other media. We are in the process of putting up seasonal informative displays about Japan and Japanese culture.

If you come to the Consulate-General of Japan, please be sure to drop by the Center. If you have any questions about the Center, or our services, we are waiting to hear from you.
