The Japan Information & Culture Center (JICC) is a part of the Public Affairs Section of the Embassy of Japan in Washington D.C. The JICC is committed to enriching the relationship between Japan and the United States through an active, vibrant cultural exchange. We aim to promote a better understanding of Japan and Japanese culture by providing a wide range of information and diverse cultural programming.

For the past 25 years the JICC has provided residents of the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia with an exciting, artistic dialogue through our cultural events and educational programming. As we mark our 25-year anniversary in 2016, we look forward to providing all our guests, new and old, with a variety of excellent cultural opportunities.
