Background: “Japan-UK Season of Culture 2019-20”

The “Japan-UK Season of Culture 2019-20” bridges the Rugby World Cup 2019 and the Olympic and Paralympic Games, Japan will organise the Japan Season of Culture in the UK, and the UK will oversee the UK Season of Culture in Japan in parallel. This was agreed between the Prime Ministers of Japan and the UK in August 2017.

The Japan Season of Culture in the UK will showcase Japan’s multi-faceted appeal, from its culture and art to innovation and cutting-edge technology in areas such as medicine, science and industry. By building on various areas of grassroots exchange and local community activities that already exist, we hope to use the momentum of the Japan Season of Culture to create a legacy that will endure in its aftermath.

The official logo of “Japan Season of Culture in the UK”

Organisers who register with the Embassy of Japan for the events will be allowed to use the title “Official event of the Japan Season of Culture in the UK” and the official logo for all publicity materials (paper-based such as posters and pamphlets as well as websites etc) to promote the various activities of the “Japan Season of Culture in the UK”. We will publish an outline of the event in the Official Event List of the Japan Season of Culture in the UK on this website.

The design of the official logo uses colours featured in the Japanese and British national flags. It shows interlocking waves to symbolise exchanges between Japan and the UK.
